A New Year, a New You!
Good day, 2022. It’s a new year, and that brings new chances to make positive changes. Many of us have already started writing down our goals and ambitions for the next year. Here are five acts you may incorporate into your new lifestyle if you want to take better care of your smile this year:
Make a commitment to flossing.
Brushing your teeth after each meal is a great place to start when it comes to maintaining a healthy grin, but it doesn’t end there. Brushing alone will not remove every single food particle from between your teeth. You must floss on a frequent basis if you want your teeth to be entirely clean and shining. Keep floss accessible on your bathroom counter and a reminder to floss on your bathroom mirror to avoid forgetting. If you forget to floss at work or school, you can keep extra floss in your handbag or work bag.
Consume healthy foods.
Brushing and flossing are good for your teeth, but what do you feed your body? Dairy products are high in calcium and are good for your teeth. Crisp carrots and apples, for example, promote saliva production and aid in the removal of plaque and other food waste. Eating a balanced diet after the holidays is a fantastic way to start the new year feeling healthy and powerful.
Reduce your sugar consumption.
Sugar should be avoided if you wish to have a healthy mouth this year. It would not only benefit your overall health, but it would also significantly minimize your chances of acquiring dental decay and cavities. The simplest way to reduce your sugar intake is to limit the amount of sugary goods you buy at the shop. Replace sugary snacks with fruit and nuts, and soda with sparkling water or sugar-free drinks like La Croix.
Consider whitening your teeth.
If your teeth could use a little radiance in the new year, we strongly propose teeth whitening operations! Teeth whitening is a wonderful procedure for polishing and boosting the confidence of a smile that is already attractive. Ask us about teeth whitening options during your next consultation; we’d be happy to help.
Make an appointment with the dentist.
Finally, if you can’t remember when you last went to the dentist, it’s time to schedule an appointment. If you are experiencing sensitivity or pain, you should make an appointment as soon as possible to address the problem before it worsens. We’d be glad to help you and your family get a head start on your dental health goals for this year. We are a high-quality, patient-centered dentistry practice serving the Houston Memorial City area. We hope to see you soon!
