Resolutions are an important part of the New Year because they provide us with goals and directions. Resolutions encourage us to surpass our previous achievements and challenge ourselves in new ways.
Why not add some dental health based New Year resolutions into the resolutions you have already made? Healthier teeth can create a brighter smile, better health, and even save you money.
At Alex Bratic Dental Care we urge you to adopt New Year’s resolutions that benefit your teeth, smile, confidence and health. Below are some resolutions that are great for your teeth and oral health. These resolutions are also simple and achievable, so they are a great way to start the year!
A New Start in 2017
Keep your brushing and flossing schedule. This resolution is simple, easy, and effective. Brush twice a day, for at least two minutes each time, and floss at least once. Check your oral hygiene techniques with your dentist, and make sure your dental care kit is visible and accessible.
Visit your dentist at regular intervals. It is easy to put off dental care – other important things pop up, you’re on a budget, sometimes you just forget. But don’t cut back on dental visits! Your Beenleigh dentist will work with you to keep your teeth and wallet healthy.
Cut back on sugar. We’ve all heard about the link between sugar and dental decay and cavities, and studies have repeatedly proved it. Sugar in the mouth is a quick energy source for bacteria, who reproduce quickly and excrete plaque.
Plaque leads to cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. Cutting back on sugar can be as easy as swapping non-sugared foods for their sugary brothers, or learning to read labels to avoid hidden sugars.
Quit Smoking! If you smoke, quitting is the most important you can do to improve your oral and overall health. Smoking can stain your teeth. Worse, smoking increases the risk for both gum disease and oral cancer. Ask your Alex Bratic dentist or hygienist about ways to quit using tobacco.
Perfect your teeth, gums, and smile! 2017 is the year to deal with any small dental health issues that you still might have. Braces such as Invisalign, dental crowns, or veneers can improve your ability to chew and give you a sunny smile. Grey or stained teeth can be lightened, resulting in improved appearance and confidence.
Modern dentistry offers a wide range of treatments to improve your smile and dental health. Your Alex Bratic dentist will be happy to discuss dental treatments with you.
