Call it a coincidence, call it irony, the month of October is actually National Dental Hygiene Month. Yes, while we’re preparing for Halloween with sweet treats like Halloween Goblin Balls or Butterfinger Eyeballs, we’re really supposed to be watching out for our teeth. That means brushing well, flossing, and even rinsing our mouths with mouthwash from time to time. But most importantly, it means eating the right foods to help take care of our teeth.
