Everyday Well-Being

Check to see if you are up to date on having your teeth cleaned.

How to do it

When's the last time you had your teeth cleaned? If you can't remember, check your calendar or call your dentist, because it may be that time! If that's the case, plan to make an appointment. And if you already have a dental check-up scheduled or had your teeth cleaned recently, congratulations - you can click done!

Why it matters

Dental check-ups and cleanings are an important part of good oral hygiene, but they tend to get lost in the fray of hectic work and family schedules. Going to the dentist can help prevent cavities, tooth loss, and also catch early signs of gum disease.

Fun fact

Toothpaste was first used over 2,500 years ago, but fluoride wasn't approved as a toothpaste ingredient until the 1950s.
