Men’s Health Month

June is National Men’s Health Month, which is as good a time as ever to finally make that change in your habits that you’ve been considering forever but have yet to get around to. 

Whether it’s starting to exercise more or eat better or start seeing your doctor with greater regularity, any small change can make a tremendous difference in the long run if you stick to it.   

When it comes to caring for your oral health, there are several small but significant changes that you might want to consider as your National Men’s Health Month pledge. We’ve listed three of them below. Remember that starting one good habit can have a snowball effect that might just result in a much healthier you come next June.

Reduce Sugar Intake

Too much sugar can affect your health in a variety of ways, and that includes your oral health. Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugary foods, which results in the creation of acids that wear down tooth enamel and cause decay. 

You don’t have to drop sugar entirely, but reducing your intake can be a great decision for your oral and overall health.

Start Brushing and Flossing Regularly

You may have a decent oral hygiene routine going, but odds are you can do better. Brushing twice a day every day for around two minutes is crucial, and so is flossing every day. If you haven’t been doing that, maybe this month is the time to start.

See Your Dentist for an Exam

Don’t avoid the dentist just because you have no urgent oral health concerns. A routine exam and cleaning twice a year is the best way to avoid serious issues with your oral health, including oral cancer, which is significantly more prevalent in men than in women.

I've been a patient of Dr. Piper's for the last 19 years so it's very obvious that I've been a very very satisfied patient. I had an excellent full check-up today with x-rays and everything was perfect. Perfect because I've been going consistently and following their experts on dental care, cleaning and good health! Bravo 👏 👏 👏

Dr. Piper and staff are always very professional, I have been a patient for over 15 years, and happy about it. Just got my teeth cleaned and checked recently, Sandra is friendly and thorough, and the office felt very clean which is important.

Staff were fast and attentive, didn't wait long before I saw Dr. Piper. The office is clean and organized. Was a great decision to use this practice and will be visiting again. Not a single issue. Cannot recommend enough.
