New Year, Better Smile

Many people set new goals about having a healthier lifestyle in the new year. Why not make one of your New Year’s resolutions improving your dental health? Healthy resolutions can keep your teeth healthy, and any of the following strategies will go a long way toward giving you a brighter, healthier smile in the coming year:

Here are Bandon Dental's January resolutions: 

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.
