Wash Your Hands

Wash your hands

Did you know..that washing your hands should be part of your oral hygiene routine?!
You should wash your hands not only before but also after you brush and floss your teeth.
Think about all the things you are touching throughout the day..
* Phone screens
* Credit cards
* Door knobs
* Counter tops
* Keyboards
* Gas pumps
If you do not wash you hands before you floss (which should be done before brushing) those germs on your hands will be able to enter your mouth. If you did not wash your hands after then the germs that are on your hands from flossing will get on your toothbrush and you will carry them with you to whatever you touch next.
Limit the amount of germs and bacteria that can enter your mouth by washing your hands first. Stop the spread of germs by washing your hands after.
