Add “dental health improvement” to your New Year’s resolutions. Because dental health and overall health have links to each other, you mustn’t neglect taking care of your teeth, mouth, and gums. Today we’ll share concrete dental health goals that you can tackle as you bring in the new year and beyond.
Say “No” to Gum Disease
Gum disease prevention is as simple as brushing and flossing daily. When you improve your daily oral health routine, it makes a world of difference. If your goal is to remove plaque, in particular, you should brush your teeth twice daily using an excellent toothbrush and a toothpaste with fluoride. Position the bristles at a 45-degree angle and ensure that you brush across your gumline. To remove residue food, floss daily and replace your toothbrush every three to four months to aid in an effective toothbrushing process.
Say “Yes” to Dental Cleanings
Dental cleanings help get rid of plaque accumulation. Even if you brush your teeth and floss consistently, sometimes it takes dental tools to reach specific mouth crevices. Schedule an appointment today if it’s been more than six months since you’ve seen one of our fantastic dentists. Plaque buildup can not only make you more susceptible to gum disease, but sometimes it also results in bad breath.
Say “No” to Tobacco
It can be extremely challenging to quit using tobacco products, but tobacco use does more harm than good. You’ll find that if you seek help for this addiction, it will improve your overall health and quality of life.
Brighten Up Your Year
We’re all hoping for a brighter 2021. Why not start with your smile? If you want a brighter smile:
- Ask us today about the Day White whitening process benefits
- Keep in mind that a whiter smile is not equivalent to a healthier smile.
- Ensure that you have all of your dental health ducks in a row before seeking a brighter smile.
Restore Your Tooth Structure
If you think you may need crowns, implants, or fillings, schedule an appointment with our dentists today. Cosmetic dentistry not only helps as far as aesthetics, but it preserves tooth structure and alignment.
We hope that you check all of your New Year’s resolutions off your list and that you have a happy new year!
