New Year’s Resolutions For Your Smile

Published on January 9th, 2018

New year, new smile! 2018 is the year to improve your smile by making a new year’s resolution to take better care of your teeth and oral hygiene. Here are a few things you can do to make your teeth sparkle.

Call us today to schedule your new year appointment!

Promise to Floss

We all like to pretend we floss daily but for most people, this isn’t actually the case. Brushing helps to clean the surface of your teeth but it isn’t enough to remove all the plaque buildup. If you aren’t already in the habit of flossing, now is the perfect time to start. To make it easier, place floss right next to your toothbrush so you have to notice it every time you brush your teeth.

Give Up Sugary Beverages

One of the best things you can do for your teeth is cut out sugary beverages. Eliminating sugar-filled foods and drinks can significantly decrease your risk of developing tooth decay and help keep your mouth happy and healthy. To help ease into this, there are plenty of sugar-free treats and beverages that taste just as sweet as a soda or a piece of candy.
