September is a month of transition, and it's not just the weather that's changing! Many people have kids who are heading back to school and you, yourself, may need to adjust to a more demanding routine. Added stress may have you looking for ways to save time, but two things that should not be skipped during your morning routine are a nutritious breakfast and regular brushing and flossing. From the classroom to the boardroom, a healthy breakfast improves performance, concentration and overall health. You don't need a three course sit-down meal; keep it simple with a healthy bowl of oatmeal and fruit for a healthy boost to start your day. Brushing and flossing can provide the opportunity to think positively about your day to help you reduce stress while maintaining your oral health.

Try Mouthwash with Essential Oils Dips for Friends
 
Have you heard of biofilm?

Biofilm is a gooey substance that can form on any surface containing water and is exposed to bacteria. You can find biofilm on surfaces like sinks, countertops, cutting boards and yes, even inside your own mouth - Yuck! Biofilm on your teeth can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease so it is important to take the necessary preventative measures.

Luckily we can prevent biofilm from forming by practicing good oral care including the use of mouthwash. Mouthwash is a great way to leave your mouth feeling nice and clean while also combating cavities and gum disease. It can also help prevent plaque from building up on your teeth and gums. Plaque is a type of yellowish biofilm that can form on the surface of your teeth and negatively affect your oral health.
