    New year, new resolution?

    As we enter the new year, it’s time to take positive steps towards the life you want to lead… and you don’t have to go big! Think about little things that can make a huge difference. Many people like to focus on health and well-being in the new year – lose a bit of weight, get fitter – that kind of thing. But have you ever thought about a new year’s resolution for your teeth? We all have them right, just the one set so they need to last a lifetime.

    Why not take a few steps to improve your dental health as a critical part of overall fitness.

    Avoid Gum Disease

    Daily brushing and flossing will help prevent gum disease. Improving daily oral care routines is a simple way to improve your health. For successful plaque removal, brush at least twice a day using a good toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste. Position the bristles at a 45-degree angle toward the gumline and move the toothbrush across the teeth. Floss at least once per day to remove unwanted pieces of food that may have accumulated throughout the day. Replace toothbrushes every 3 to 4 months, or sooner if you’ve been sick.

    Dental Cleaning

    Get rid of unsightly plaque that builds up around lower front teeth. If it’s been more than 6 months since your last hygienist appointment, you’re definitely overdue!

    Improve Appearance

    Start the year off bright. There are several ways to improve your teeth appearance including teeth whitening. Tobacco, wine, coffee, and tea can turn your teeth a rather dull and yellow. Visit your dentist to discuss appropriate teeth whitening options. Remember, only your dentist can use high strength bleach to achieve really white teeth. Products that can be bought online or over-the-counter can pose risks to our health, particularly if you don’t know whether the level of bleach they contain is safe, so please avoid!

    Restore Teeth

    The new year is the perfect time to complete recommended dental work. Crowns, implants, and fillings help preserve tooth structure and maintain proper tooth alignment.

    Preserve your teeth

    Teeth grinding can be caused by stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, abnormal bite, or teeth that are missing or out of alignment. Symptoms include dull headaches, jaw soreness, painful teeth, or fractured tooth surfaces. If you’re concerned about teeth grinding, ask your dentist about solutions such as the F.O.S. splint – a mouthguard worn at night and a proven solution to headaches and migraines caused by night time clenching and grinding of teeth.
