It's our favorite month of the year here at McNicholas Dental - National Dental Hygiene Month!!

To celebrate, every weekday in October at 3 PM, we'll post a new fact or tip about your teeth and dental hygiene on our Facebook page - www.facebook.com/mcnicholasdental. Be sure to like the page and share any tips you think your friends might want to know about!

Here's a sneak peak of our tip for today:

National Dental Hygiene Month, Fact #10:

Eat dairy products: Dairy products are great sources of calcium and phosphorus, the two most important minerals for the health of your teeth. Calcium and phosphorus help to remineralise the teeth which means that more calcium and phosphorus is going into the teeth, rather than leaving.

Non-fat and low-fat milk, yogurt or cottage cheese are your best bets. Cheese contains calcium and phosphorus, too, but there’s another reason it’s considered good for your teeth. Eating cheese stimulates the flow of saliva, which helps to wash away food particles.

Keep up with us on Facebook to learn more!!
