When the New Year begins making its hasty approach, our first thoughts turn to how we can help our patients improve their smiles during the days to come. Fortunately, by beginning with the basics, we can help all of the people who pass through our doors. If you are ready for a beautiful, healthy smile in 2016, begin by resolving to improve your oral health. Consider a couple helpful recommendations, of course, to make the experience efficient and effective.
First, Check Your Home Habits
To begin, we suggest that you check your dental hygiene habits that take place at home – this is where most of your oral health protection occurs, after all. Consider the following tips:
- If your toothbrush looks frayed or old, toss it out – or if it is older than three months, replace it with a new one.
- Make sure you’re using soft bristles and gentle pressure while you brush.
- Throw out any abrasive toothpastes and make sure you choose a nonabrasive option.
- Remember to brush twice a day for two minutes every time you brush.
- Don’t forget to follow one of your brushing sessions with a thorough flossing each day.
Next, Resolve To Visit Us Regularly
So, you’ve got your home dental habits in check – now it is time to move onto your professional dental care. When you make visits to see us a priority, your home care becomes much more successful. You see, your oral health depends in great part on dental cleanings and checkups with us. We will gently and thoroughly clean away plaque and tartar accumulation from your smile that you can’t remove with your own efforts. We will also seek out and treat problems like cavities as they occur, rather than giving them time to worsen. The result? A healthy smile.
