It’s not a secret that good oral hygiene begins in the home with regular brushing and flossing. But, did you know that by doing a Spring home cleaning that you are also helping your oral health?
Environmental cleaning is a basic principle in the prevention of infection in healthcare settings. This is because in medical and dental offices, the atmosphere is laden with bacteria and harmful toxins which find their way into your skin and mouth. Ingesting bacteria can not only get you sick, but can negatively affect your dental health over time. Therefore, these standards of hygiene in healthcare settings are also applicable to the home care setting in the prevention of diseases and the promotion of oral health. If you’ve been putting off cleaning out the cobwebs and dusting off the blinds, remember that it will not only help your home look better, but will keep you healthy as well.
