Happy New Year from Dr. Boskovic and Dr. Srbinovska! As we begin 2017, it is important to take an inventory of our current habits in order to make any changes necessary for a successful new year. One aspect of our resolutions is always our health, but our dental health isn’t always the top priority. But if you keep up with the following dental hygiene strategy, you can be sure that this year will be one to smile at.
Keeping up with your dental hygiene is important in order to prevent any issues from arising. So, brush twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, floss and use a fluoride rinse.
Keep your dental appointments. By keeping these appointments, you are taking the preventative measures to ensure your teeth are in good health and that your smile is bright and shiny and so you can avoid bad news at your check-ups.
Cut down on the sugar. Sugar may taste yummy, but our smiles are not it’s biggest fan. Sugars are the prime contributors of tooth decay. The more you eat, the more important it is to brush afterwards to make sure cavity-causing bacteria doesn’t stick around and flourish on the sugar. Try sugar-free options.
Eat your daily intake of fruits and veggies. Fruits and veggies are chockful of vitamins that keep our overall health intact, but these yummy foods can help keep our teeth and gums healthy at the same time. Think of broccoli and celery as nature’s toothbrush and floss.
