Happy New Year!
As you’re setting up goals and resolutions for 2019, please remember your oral health.
You probably heard before that a good oral and dental hygiene can help prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease—and can help you keep your teeth as you get older. Now, take a moment and try to imagine life with bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Not fun.
Luckily, a handful of small adjustment can make a huge difference to your mouth, teeth, and overall well-being:
- Start brushing 2min2x. Always brush twice a day for two minutes for healthier teeth, good breath, fewer cavities, and to avoid painful dental problems.
- Floss daily. Flossing is part of being mouth healthy.
- Chew sugarless gum. Chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay.
- Eat a healthy diet. Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.
- Drink fluoridated water. Fluoride helps prevent cavities by making teeth more resistant to the acid attacks that cause cavities.
- See your dentist. Regular dental visits will help you be Mouth Healthy for Life.
