It is that time of year again. We are looking at the coming year and trying to decide how we are going to do things differently. Going to the gym and changing diets are mainstays on resolution lists, but have you given a thought to your dental health?
Make 2020 the year that you take care of your teeth!
Take Care of Your Oral Health
If you think your oral health needs to be improved somehow, take a look at some of our top suggestions for dental health resolutions:
Visit the Dentist Twice a Year
How long has it been since you have seen the dentist? If you said 6 months or less, you are doing really well! If not, call your dentist today to set an appointment.
Your biannual visits protect your health by clearing away plaque and tartar that can lead to periodontal disease, tooth loss, and other oral health issues.
This resolution is fairly easy because you come to our office, where we do the work of cleaning your teeth. It is not even a daily commitment, like going to the gym or dieting. You can fulfill this resolution on two days during the year!
Overcome Dental Anxiety!
Maybe you felt a little sick when you read the health resolution above. If so, there is a way to keep that resolution and improve your dental health: sedation dentistry.
Although very common, you should not have to feel any fear or anxiety when you think about going to the dentist. Sedation dentistry can help you overcome those feelings, so you can get the care you need!
Maybe you are not the one who fears the dentist. If someone you love has dental anxiety, encourage that person to learn more about sedation dentistry!
Flossing is important because it disrupts bacterial growth between your teeth. Many patients are neglecting this vital habit because they feel it takes too long or are just not sure how to do it.
If you are struggling with flossing techniques, talk to your dentist. We can help you learn fast, effective ways to clean the spaces between your teeth and protect your oral health!
