2018: Dental Health Resolutions

2018 brings many great things. We’re looking forward to our patients making resolutions that will help promote better dental health. After all, your overall dental health is also an important part of your general wellbeing. These resolutions can range from committing to your routine check- up and cleaning or making every effort to complete your dental treatment plan. Here are some sample dental resolutions – remember small steps make the goals more attainable.

Resolution #1 – Improve your Home Care

Make it a priority in 2018 to improve your dental hygiene regimen. Daily brushing and flossing is a simple way to improve your oral health. It is important to brush at least 3 times per day using a manual or electric tooth brush. Flossing should be completed at least once per day to remove bacterial plaque and food that gets trapped between the teeth and below the gum line. Remember to replace your manual toothbrush every 3 months, or if you are recovering from a cold and/or the bristles are frayed.

Our practice offers the Oravital system for patients that have bad breathe, periodontal concerns or oral infections. To learn more, ask one of our clinical team members.

Resolution #2- Reduction in Sugar and Healthier Eating

Reducing your sugar intake and consumption can really impact on your overall dental health. It can prevent tooth decay and keep your teeth and body healthy.

Making healthier food and beverage choices is so important. If you are having a soft drink (soda), use a straw so that you are not coating your teeth as much. Water is always a better alternative. Commit to making healthier choices.

Resolution #3 – Schedule and Maintain your Dental Maintenance

Routine dental cleaning and checkups are so important in maintaining and monitoring the overall health of your mouth. Remember, early detection is a means of preventing potential dental problems ie gum conditions or cavities. Dental hygiene appointments are more than just a “cleaning”. Harmful bacteria is removed by the Dental Hygienist and is prevented from traveling to your body. Your Hygienist can arrange for a comprehensive plan and schedule that meets your dental needs. Remember, your mouth is the gateway to your body!!

Make sure you schedule and keep your dental appointment.
