Oral Health is an important part of your overall health and well-being. It requires more than brushing, and can effect your life, your pregnancy, and the lives of your children and loved ones for their entire life.
Adults should have screenings cleanings every six months, and children should see a dentist as soon as their first tooth comes in or their 1st Birthday.
Did you know it is possible to spread germs and cavities by common activities like kissing, sharing a spoon, or cleaning a baby’s bottle nipple by putting it in your mouth? All of these topics and more are discussed in the, “MICHC Oral Health Toolkit” with resources for parents and professionals working with families. A healthy mouth has healthy gums and teeth and a wider smile.
