Are you thinking about making a New Year’s resolution to improve your health for 2020? Getting in great physical shape, going on a diet and abstaining from your favourite vices are all great resolutions but what about making a plan to improve your oral health? This year, you need to implement the proper routines for you and your family to make everyone smile all year long. Here are some excellent things to consider doing to benefit your teeth in the New Year.
Everyone in your family needs to visit the dentist about two times per year. If your regular check-up is long overdue, you should call your dentist and make an appointment. Regular visits to the dentist help keep you and your family on track to maintain a healthy oral cavity. Your dentist will identify any problem areas in your mouth and can fix them before they become a huge issue. The holiday season is often a time everyone indulges in extra sweets and omits regular brushing and flossing so it’s a good idea to book your dentist appointment early in the New Year.
Maybe this year you are planning on getting a new job or might even find that perfect relationship. What better way to show off your confidence than with a beautiful set of sparkling white teeth? You need professional teeth whitening. Getting your teeth whitened at the dentist can remove stains that are causing your teeth to look yellow. Teeth whitening procedures are quick and painless. The results are immediate and will even improve in the following days after the appointment. Go ahead, prepare for your all-important interview as Senior Manager or complete your online dating profile, you’ve got this!
Having straight teeth is something you have always desired. Braces were not an option when you were a child because your parents could not afford the orthodontics. But now you are an adult earning your own living and you know the importance of having a great set of straight teeth. Why not ask your dentist about invisible braces? Invisible braces can correct the alignment of your teeth without the need for metal braces. These specially designed clear aligners work to gently shift your teeth into position leaving you with an aesthetically pleasing smile after several months of treatment. Book your consultation today for an assessment to find out if you are a candidate for clear braces.
Chip was never the nickname you desired but ever since that hockey puck to the face a couple of years ago, your smile was never the same. Having a chipped tooth is more than just an aesthetic problem, it can lead to further damage to your entire tooth. Why not consider getting that small chip repaired with a dental bonding procedure or a dental laminate? Your dentist can give you back the strength in that damaged tooth and it will look great after the treatment.
Ring in the New Year with good oral health and maintain it all year long by visiting your dentist regularly and keeping up that home care routine.
