Many of us start the New Year with resolutions. One of the easiest and healthiest choices you can make is the decision to take better care of your oral health, whether you choose to make a habit of flossing your teeth, scheduling regular dental check-ups, or taking care of postponed dental treatments. Making a personal commitment to improving your oral health is a resolution you can smile about all year long!
Brush and floss. One simple way to healthier teeth and gums is by practicing good daily oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once daily will help remove bacterial plaque and food that cause tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath.
Make healthy choices. The holidays are a time when many of us find ourselves tempted by sweets and snacks. Foods and drinks that contain carbohydrates and acids can cause tooth decay. Get in the habit of brushing and rinsing your mouth after eating. Chewing sugar-free gum after meals can help reduce cavity-causing bacteria in your mouth. If you smoke, the New Year is a perfect time to make a resolution to stop tobacco use. The benefits of living tobacco-free include improving your oral health.
Smile a lot. If the condition of your teeth and mouth make you hesitant to smile, now is a great time to build your confidence with a bright, healthy smile. Your dentist may offer in-office professional whitening or at-home whitening products. If you have postponed having restorative dental work such as implants, crowns, or fillings, commit to getting it done. Not only will it improve the appearance of your smile, it will also help improve your tooth structure and tooth alignment, benefitting your overall oral health.
Have regular dental visits. The best way to protect your oral health is by scheduling regular visits to your dentist, at least every six months. Your dentist and dental hygienist will be able to monitor the condition of your teeth, gums, and mouth – helping you prevent oral disease by detecting any condition in its early stage.
