We’ve just entered the New Year, and many of us may have already broken our New Year’s resolutions. Of course this tends to happen every year, but this year there is one kind of resolution that shouldn’t be broken – a resolution to improve your health.
The good news is that some simple and practical dental resolutions can improve not only your dental health, but your general health and appearance as well. At Prevent Dental Suite we recommend that you consider our list of New Year’s resolutions that could benefit your teeth, health, and look.
Five Helpful New Year Resolutions for Your Smile and Wellbeing
- Brush and floss regularly
This simple resolution can have enormous benefits. Make sure your toothbrush and toothpaste are easy to see and use – out of sight means out of mind! Brush in the morning and evening.
Floss between your teeth once a day. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into calculus or tartar. Flossing may also help prevent gum disease and cavities.
- No more tobacco
Tobacco is linked to a list of dental health issues including gum disease, cancer, and stained teeth. Pick a date to quit, get rid of the tobacco products at your house and get the support of your friends and family to help you quit.
- Eat healthier foods
First, cut back on sugar. Then, resolve to add healthy foods to your diet, which will have healthy effects on your teeth. Dairy products, which are high in calcium, are great for tooth strength.
High fibre foods can stimulate saliva production and scrub away plaque and small bits of food that might remain in the mouth after eating..
- Visit your dentist regularly
It is easy to forget or skip a dental appointment. But this is a very bad habit to get into. Twice-annual visits to your dentist are your guarantee of good teeth, gums, oral health, and an attractive smile.
- Improve your smile
You smile is often the first thing that people notice about you, and therefore it is important to have an attractive one. Invisible braces, bridges, and veneers can aid your ability to chew and also present a happier smile to the world.
Dingy teeth or teeth stained by tobacco, cola, coffee, or tea can be treated, resulting in better appearance. There are a variety of treatments to improve your smile, and at Prevent Dental Suite we are happy to go over them with you.
