The dawn of a new decade is a great time to take stock, but most New Year resolutions quickly fall by the wayside. This year, how about making some easy-to-keep resolutions to improve oral health?
- Treat yourself to a new toothbrush so you can clean your teeth more thoroughly. You need to replace your toothbrush every three months, so by the time spring arrives, you’ll know it is time to replace it again, and the same for autumn and winter. An old and worn toothbrush cannot clean your teeth effectively.
- Floss daily and your gums will love and reward you by staying strong and healthy. If you aren’t sure how to floss, ask us for help and advice as we can show you lots of tips and tricks that will make flossing a breeze.
- Visit Coastal Smiles regularly for checkups and cleanings. Most people need to see us twice yearly to maintain good oral health and prevent problems, but people with existing dental or medical issues might benefit from additional visits. Smaller problems are far cheaper and quicker to treat, and it is far more cost-effective too!
- Lastly, smile more frequently as smiling has been shown to provide all sorts of health benefits. It helps to boost the production of feelgood neurotransmitters, and it is contagious too.
