A new year is right around the corner, which means New Year’s resolutions are starting to pop up in our heads. Now, we’ve all heard the traditional “Lose weight,” “Exercise more,” and “Get out of debt” resolutions, but what about smile resolutions? Our dentist, Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta, encourages you to think of your smile this New Year’s Even and make a resolution for your teeth and gums. Some dental resolutions could be:
-Remembering to brush twice a day for two minutes each time (This can help you have healthier teeth, pristine breath, fewer cavities, and fewer dental problems)
-Remembering to floss daily (Flossing is vital for a top-notch oral health and for the prevention of tooth decay and gum disease)
-Chewing sugar-free gum regularly (This can help you produce more saliva, which can help you prevent dental problems)
-Having a healthy and balanced diet (Eating tooth-healthy foods and drinking tooth-healthy drinks can help your smile)
-Drinking more fluoridated water (Fluoridated water can strengthen your tooth enamel and help you prevent dental problems)
-Visiting your dentist regularly (It’s very important to visit your dentist every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam)
