Resolutions You Can Make Any Time of Year to Protect Your Teeth
Posted on 10/23/2017 by Downtown Dental Care Office
Most people make resolutions for their health around New Year's Eve, but that doesn't need to be the only time you make a healthy resolution. It can happen any day of the year.
If you want to take better control over your oral health, then take a day right now, and make resolutions about how you want to take care of yourself. Start with your mouth, and once you have that resolution going, then you can add in another.
Healthy Mouth Resolutions to Consider Making
Here are a few resolutions that you may want to consider making for your mouth.
Visiting the dentist if it has been a while since your last visit.
Getting a missing tooth replaced.
Updating your dentures or considering going to dental implants to restore full function to your mouth.
Getting veneers to cover up imperfections in your teeth.
Finding out if your teeth would be good candidates for whitening.
Stopping smoking to help increase the health of your mouth, and the rest of your body.
Starting a better oral hygiene routine where you consistently brush twice, rinse once, and floss once each and every day.
Eating healthier foods to better your mouth, and the rest of your body.
Going through and making a resolution to better your overall health doesn't have to happen on New Years. It can happen at any point in time during the year, and it should happen far more often than once per year.
If you haven't been to the dentist in the last six months, call them. Schedule an exam and a cleaning, and see if there is anything more that needs to happen to get your oral health caught up. It is worth it!
