Dental Health New Year’s Resolutions

Call Us Today

The New Year is a time for self improvement, but choosing a resolution can be difficult. If you’re tired of stale resolutions that you know you can’t keep, try making 2019 all about your oral health. The following dental health resolutions are sure to improve your health, help you feel better, and boost your confidence.

Schedule Your Regular Dentist Appointment – and Follow Up Every Six Months

When was the last time you went to the dentist? If it was more than six months ago, it’s definitely time to schedule a check-up. After all, visiting the dentist every six months is one of the most crucial components to ongoing dental wellness.

Make your resolution to set an appointment and return every six months to receive the comprehensive care and attention your teeth and gums truly need.

Finally Start Flossing

Brushing twice a day is a great habit, but you can’t skip flossing and expect to maintain great oral health. Brushing can only remove plaque and debris from the visible surfaces of your teeth. Flossing is critical to scrape bacteria from in between your teeth. Plaque loves to accumulate in those dark crevices, so make your resolution now to floss each day and prevent future decay.

Replace Sugar With Foods That Help Your Teeth

You know that eating a pile of donuts isn’t great for your teeth (or your blood sugar), but you may not realize that sugar lurks in many other common foods you eat every day. Flavored yogurt, salad dressing, cereal, and even “healthy” protein bars are all packed with sugar.

A New Year’s Resolution to replace sugar with healthier choices like fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and whole grains will improve your health in many different ways. You will protect your teeth from cavities and decay, balance your blood sugar.

Get Screened For Oral Cancer

Oral cancer is a serious condition that affects millions of people every year. One simple screening this year can help you identify your risk and receive preventative treatment if needed. Talk to your holistic dentist like Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates in Clearwater, Florida to learn more about oral cancer and the best strategies to protect yourself from the disease.

Call 727-888-6523 to schedule your appointment today at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry. It’s the easiest New Year’s Resolution you’ll ever make!
