The New Year is the ideal time to get a grip on your oral health care routine and to improve it where necessary. One way to do this is to make sure you have your next dental check-up and hygiene appointment booked well in advance. Even if your teeth and gums feel healthy, schedule an appointment and make sure you go. Here at Coastal Smiles, we can easily detect minor problems and can treat them, frequently at a stage where they don’t cause any discomfort or pain.
Another easy way to improve your oral care routine is to commit to flossing each day. If this sounds too extreme initially, make a promise to yourself to floss at least twice a week and gradually build up from there. Add a day a week, and you will soon be flossing every day. It’s one of the best things you can do to maintain healthy gums. If you’re not sure where to start with flossing, ask us at your next dental appointment. We can show you easy techniques and tricks that will make flossing a breeze.
