2020 is Around the Corner!
2020 is around the corner! What comes to mind with this new year? A new decade? An opportunity to grow? Time for change? These are just some of the things on people’s mind as the new year approaches. On the other hand, one thing that may be far from people’s minds is improving their oral health. What can you do to start your journey to a better, more healthy smile?
Visit the Dentist
When we visit our general doctor throughout the year, we may not necessarily have anything wrong with us that we know of. It is a preventative care visit. Since the doctor is a professional, he or she can detect things we are not able to. The same is true at the dentist. X-rays along with special instruments and a trained eye allow dental professionals to help you not only maintain dental health but also prevent current issues from deteriorating.
Brush and Floss Daily
This is the bread and butter of oral health care. When you are consistent about brushing thoroughly twice a day and flossing once, you are removing problem causing bacteria. This bacteria, if left on your teeth, can cause decay in your teeth and even a disease in your gums called Periodontal Disease. Making the effort to take care of your teeth is definitely worth it!
Adopt a Better Diet
Often, people try to eat healthier to lose weight. Although this is one benefit of better food choices, it is also an excellent way to improve your oral health, as Mouth Healthy brings out! Less sugar means less chance of developing dental caries or cavities. More fruits and veggies mean more vitamins like vitamin C that benefits gum health. Adding some Calcium rich foods like almonds and green leafy veggies, can help to make your teeth and bones stronger!
