Dental Health New Year's Resolutions
Our overall wellness includes taking proper care of our dental health. The New Year is a great time to create (and stick to) resolutions for improving our dental health. First and foremost, schedule a Kirkwood dental checkup to start your new year right.
From improving toothbrushing techniques to not delaying that dental treatment anymore - whatever your dental health resolutions are, the key is consistency. Understanding the benefits of what your dental health resolutions are will also help you immensely in sticking to them.
Here are some dental health resolutions to get that perfect, healthy smile:
Nutrients in healthy food strengthen teeth and help avoid gum disease. Make sure to up your intake of tooth-friendly foods in your diet.
Brush and floss regularly
Brushing and flossing regularly are the main things we can do to avoid oral health complications. These are our first line of defense against plaque, which can develop on and between teeth causing decay and gum disease.
Get your Kirkwood dental checkup regularly
Aside from eating healthy and practicing good oral habits, always make it a point to check in with your dentist. Schedule regular checkups so your dentist can properly monitor your dental health and address any issues before it worsen. Ideally, you should visit your dentist every six months.
Do your teeth and gum a favor by practicing excellent dental health habits in 2018. Call Taylor Dental at (314) 968-4064 to schedule your Kirkwood dental checkup. Happy New Year from Taylor Dental!
