The holiday season brings forth appreciation and togetherness, often in the spirit of giving. This past year has brought us all challenges and made us extra thankful for the things we have and the special people in our lives. And now more than ever, there’s a renewed focus on health and prevention. So this year, why not give the gift of oral health to those you care about?
There are long-established links between oral health and overall health. In fact, many disease processes show up in the oral cavity before other physical symptoms appear. In turn, better oral care reduces inflammation and can help control diseases such as diabetes more easily. Management of oral care can also reduce the risk of dental diseases, including decay and periodontal disease. There are many methods to home care, and the key is to find a routine that works best for each individual.
During the pandemic, many things are being tested to find potential protection against the virus. A few recent studies even suggest that xylitol may inhibit COVID. Did you know that the Oxyfresh Periodontal Health System contains a great-tasting mouthwash with xylitol and chlorine dioxide to fight decay and neutralize bacteria? Not only that, but it’s a complete dental system!
The Periodontal Health System also includes Pro Relief Dental Gel, so you can give the gift of sensitivity relief and healing. Sensitivity is a concern for many individuals and can make brushing uncomfortable. The cold winter air can also increase sensitivity, making outdoor festivities difficult to enjoy. Rounding out the complete system is Oxyfresh’s gentle Cavity Protection toothpaste and easy-to-use tongue scraper.
What a person does at home matters just as much, if not more, than professional dental care. It sets the stage for overall dental health and reduces the risk of adverse outcomes. Visiting the dentist regularly is imperative, not just for screening of oral cancer and decay, but to detect gum disease early on, when it’s easily treatable. Gingivitis and periodontal disease affect much of the population, and many others are plagued with decay. Oxyfresh provides a variety of oral care solutions, with the Periodontal Health System perfectly targeted to gum health.
This holiday season we hold our loved ones close to our hearts and cherish the time we have together, even from a distance. Be thankful for health and make dental visits easier and more effective by giving the gift of a well-rounded dental care program.
