A New Year to smile brightly!

It's been said that New Year's Resolutions are like babies: fun to make, but difficult to maintain. While most people focus on fitness and finances, resolutions regarding oral health will benefit you for years to come. Many simple resolutions can make a dramatic difference.

-Brush and floss your teeth twice daily with a soft toothbrush in a gentle circular motion, rather than back-and-forth. And while brushing is vital to oral health and makes your teeth feel sleek, flossing remove plaques from between teeth. Keep dental floss handy to floss after meals and replace your toothbrush every 3 months.

-Regular visits to your dentist are essential to help long-term prevention so schedule your dental cleanings, now. And say yes to x-rays which can find hidden problems.

-With the New Year, many insurance policies are restarted. We can help you understand what benefits you are entitled to-make the most of your insurance throughout the year.

-Eating healthy can have a positive affect for your body AND your mouth too! Foods high in acid or sugar can contribute to tooth decay. So, instead of the sugary snack, crunch on crisp produce such as carrots, celery, or apples which help clean plaque from teeth.

-Stop smoking and chewing. Tobacco discolors teeth, increases gum recession and disease, contributes to tooth loss, and is a leading reason for lung, throat, and oral cancers.
