Start Your Year Off Right With These Smile Healthy Resolutions
- Posted on: Jan 15 2018
If living a healthier, happier life is one of your top priorities for 2018, then we have got you covered. As a part of the body that is often neglected, your mouth plays a serious role in your overall health and happiness which means that you should move your oral health to the top of your new year’s resolutions list. If you still haven’t settled on some resolutions or if you’re looking for some more to add to your list (you overachiever!) then consider giving these a try.
Quitting smoking isn’t just great for your heart, lungs, neighbors, and family, but it’s also good for your oral health as well. Cigarette smoke is the leading cause of oral cancer which means that if you are a smoker, you are putting yourself at a higher risk of getting this type of cancer.
Get Regular Cleanings
The American Dental Association wasn’t kidding when they recommended that every patient get their teeth cleaned by a professional twice a year. Regular dental cleanings form Gentle Dentistry will not only help you catch things like oral cancer or gum disease early on, but they are one of the most significant ways to prevent cavities, plaque buildup, and tooth decay.
Consider Enhancing Your Good Looks
Yes, you may look at yourself in the mirror and think, “Dang! That’s one good looking person,” but if you don’t take care of your teeth, then your good looks may drop from a high 10 to a 5 with just one flash of your smile. Luckily, here at Gentle Dentistry, we can make all of your cosmetic dentistry resolutions come to life this year. With dental whitening, implants, veneers, and more, we can transform your teeth from drab to fab before you can say, “Cheeeeese!”
