The New Year is a great time to make resolutions, but this year how about making some that are easy to keep, and which will help to improve oral health? Follow our tips to start the New Year off.
Book Dental Appointments and Cleanings
Make sure you book dental appointments and cleanings for your entire family. Regular dental checkups are the easiest and most effective way to gain and maintain good oral health. When you come and see us regularly, we can check the condition of your mouth carefully, detecting any signs of disease or changes since your last visit. The sooner we can detect a problem, the more easily it is treated. It’s an approach that saves you time and money and saves your teeth.
Buy a New Toothbrush
Celebrate the New Year with a shiny new toothbrush that will help to clean your teeth more effectively. After three months, toothbrushes become worn and need replacing. When spring makes an appearance, you’ll know it’s time for another new brush.
Smoking can be a hard habit to quit and is a popular New Year resolution. If it is your resolution, make this the year you beat the habit. Smoking increases your risk of tooth decay and gum disease, and it’s also linked to an increased risk of oral cancer.
