5 new years resolutions for your smile

The start of a new year is the perfect time to make resolutions and set goals for yourself. While resolutions like exercising more and eating healthier are always popular, have you considered making resolutions specifically related to your smile? Here are five New Year’s resolutions you should consider making to improve the health and appearance of your teeth and gums:

  1. Brush and floss regularly: Good oral hygiene habits, like brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily, are essential for maintaining a healthy smile. Make a resolution to be more diligent about your oral hygiene routine this year.
    Visit the dentist regularly: Regular dental checkups and cleanings are important for catching and treating any issues with your teeth and gums early on. Make a resolution to visit the dentist every six months (or as recommended by your dental professional).
  2. Kick bad habits: Habits like smoking and biting your nails can have negative impacts on your oral health. If you have any bad habits that could be damaging your teeth or gums, make a resolution to kick them to the curb this year.
  3. Fix any dental issues: If you have any dental issues, like crooked teeth or missing teeth, make a resolution to address them this year. Whether it’s through orthodontic treatment or restorative procedures, taking care of dental issues can improve both the health and appearance of your smile.
  4. Practice stress management: Stress can have negative impacts on your oral health, including increasing the risk of tooth grinding and gum disease. Make a resolution to find ways to manage stress, like through relaxation techniques or exercise, to help protect your smile.

By making these five resolutions, you can start the new year off on the right foot and work towards a healthy, confident smile.
