Ring in the New Year with a New You – Read Our Top Dental Tips for Starting the New Year Off

Even if you haven’t made any firm resolutions, you probably have a few ideas about how to begin the New Year, perhaps by eating healthier or exercising more frequently. But how about setting some goals to improve oral health? It’s easier than you think! Essential dental care will only take a few minutes each day, so it’s an easy resolution to keep.

Regular Tooth Brushing and Flossing

It might be basic, but it’s so important to have a proper oral care routine. Brushing your teeth keeps your mouth healthy and clean, while flossing removes bacteria and food debris unreachable by a toothbrush. If you are looking to improve your tooth brushing and flossing techniques, don’t hesitate to ask us for help.

Regular Hygiene Appointments Are Unmissable

Along with your dental checkups, regular hygiene appointments are essential for oral health. When your teeth are cleaned professionally, it removes all plaque and tartar buildup, leaving you with shiny clean teeth, beautifully fresh breath and healthier, stronger gums.

Choose Mouth Healthy Foods

Did you know some foods are better for oral health than others? Foods like fibrous fruits and veggies will slightly scrub teeth as you chew them, and the higher water content helps to wash away bacteria. Other tooth-friendly foods include sugar-free dairy products and especially cheese.
