New Year, New Smile – Try Some Dental Resolutions This Year?

Don’t way until the New Year to make dental resolutions. Start today. Did you know that you should replace your toothbrush every three to four months? Toothbrush bristles become frayed and worn and are less effective at cleaning your teeth over time. Try celebrating the New Year with a brand new toothbrush. This is a smart resolution that is great for your dental hygiene.

Some more dental resolutions to try this year:

Start brushing 2minutes twice per day (Minimum): Make sure to always brush twice a day for two minutes for healthier teeth, good breath, fewer cavities, and to avoid painful dental problems. Three times would be optimum, but two is better than most people do.

Floss every day. Flossing is part of being mouth healthy. Try floss threaders, dental picks, and proxy brushes that make flossing a snap.

Chew sugarless gum. Chewing sugarless gum can actually be good for your teeth and gums. Chew gum for 20 minutes following meals to help prevent tooth decay. Gum takes care of food particles that are left over in your mouth after meals.

Eat a healthy diet. Eat a balanced diet, avoid sugary snacks, and limit between-meal snacks.

Drink fluoridated water. Fluoride helps prevent cavities by making teeth more resistant to the acid attacks that cause cavities.

See your dentist. Regular dental visits will help you be Mouth Healthy for Life.
