Good oral hygiene is essential. Taking adequate care of your teeth and gums every day is necessary for maintaining excellent dental health.

When we are younger, we often associate the word year with a prolonged period of time, which to a child in school may seem almost endless. However, as we grow older and our perception of life expands, we come to understand that a simple twelve-month year, isn’t really that much time at all. Therefore, its important when scheduling any mandatory requirements (work meetings, doctors’ appointments, and family events) to be mindful of this, and be wary of the fact that if we procrastinate or are not paying attention, time can quickly pass us by!
Therefore, when compiling a list of yearly requirements, a dental appointment may not sound like the biggest priority, or at at least like something that could be put on the back-burner for a while. However, this is probably not the best move as unlike some yearly requirements, to truly give your teeth the proper care they need, a dental appointment scheduled twice each year.
