Dental Resolutions for 2022: Canley Heights Dental Care
As 2022 fast approaches, make the New Year’s resolutions.
Some resolve to be more thoughtful, to live each day to the fullest or to get organised. At the same time, many resolve to eat healthier and exercise more.
However, most people overlook the connection between the mouth and the body when it comes to overall health.
Here are 5 dental-related New Year’s resolutions that will not only help improve oral health but will help improve overall health as well.
Brush your teeth at least twice daily. If you are not doing this, then you can set an alarm clock on your phone to remind yourself to brush one time in the morning after breakfast and another before sleeping.
Don’t Forget to Floss
While brushing is fundamental for a healthy smile, don’t overlook the importance of flossing as well. Choose a specific time to floss, such as in the evening, along with brushing.
If you find it hard to stay consistent, consider using tools that make it easy to floss, such as dental floss picks.
Using tobacco products not only takes a toll on your dental health, but smoking and chewing tobacco can also affect overall health and wellness.
Stopping will help you avoid tooth discolouration, gum disease, and other negative effects of tobacco use.
Choose Water Instead of Soda
It’s important to stay hydrated, but sipping on soda all day can be one of the worst things you can do for your teeth.
Every time you take a sip, the sugars from the soda coat your teeth and create an acidic environment that promotes tooth decay. Cut back on your soda consumption, or ditch the soda altogether and choose water instead.
Regular Dental Check-ups and Cleanings
If you have been putting off your check-up or restorative work that needs to be done, set a goal to get it done immediately.
Follow these simple tips to have a great smile and the satisfaction of knowing that you are sticking to your New Year’s resolution of maintaining good dental health!
