Each one of us make new year resolutions, some you can fulfil, some you cannot. Have you considered enhancing your dental health as a goal? Whether it’s improving your brushing habits or completing dental treatment, wellness resolutions are always in season and the benefits of setting goals can be rewarding and motivating.
Be the boss of floss!
Brushing reaches only two-thirds of your teeth, no matter how well you brush. What about that last one third in between your teeth and below your gums where cavities and gum disease starts? Keep floss by your bed or even floss while watching TV, just don’t forget to do it once a day!
Kick the Coke and other sugary beverages
The disease-causing bacteria in your mouth thrive off sugar you consume – the more sugar you eat, the more sugar bacteria eat. What’s next, bacteria releases acid. This acid weakens or decalcifies, your teeth – which is how cavities begin.
Resolve to keep dental appointments
Your dentist knows best when it comes to keeping your mouth healthy. Scheduling regular checkups allows your dentist to monitor your dental health and address any concerns before they become bigger problems. Visiting your dentist every six months is the best way to ensure a clean bill of dental health, so this year, schedule regular appointments and keep your mouth in good shape.
