Do you have a goal to improve your health in the coming year? If so, don't forget about your teeth and gums. Setting some good oral health goals can keep you on the right track.
Brush Twice Per Day
The American Dental Association recommends brushing at least twice per day in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Some people find it difficult to get two brushing sessions in per day, brushing in the morning, but skipping out on a nighttime brush session. If you want to improve your dental hygiene, make a goal to brush at least twice per day.
Flossing is an important step to protect your mouth from cavities and gum disease. Flossing removes bacteria, food particles, and plaque from between the teeth where a toothbrush cannot reach. It is never too late to start flossing, so make a goal to floss at least once per day from here on out.
Brighten Your Smile
Do you want your smile to look beautiful as well as remaining healthy? If so, make a whiter smile one of your dental goals. You can take steps on your own by reducing the amount of staining foods and beverages that you consume. Whitening toothpaste and at-home remedies are available, and we also offer professional whitening services.
Keep Up with Your Dental Checkups
In most cases, we'll recommend that you come in for cleanings and checkups once every six months. This falls in line with standards put in place by the American Dental Association. These appointments are important, as they allow us to detect issues when they are in their earliest, most treatable stages. Regular cleanings also help to keep your teeth free of plaque and tartar.
