It’s official: 2019 is right around the corner. New Year’s Eve is a great time to celebrate and look forward to the future, and it’s the time of year when everyone traditionally makes resolutions to better themselves in the coming year.
This year, we implore you to make some New Year’s resolutions that will help your teeth. Here are some easy commitments that will start your year off right.
Get an Electric Toothbrush
One simple step to take for your oral health is to use an electric toothbrush. At Klooster Family Dentistry, we offer new patients a FREE Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush to promote dental wellbeing. Electric toothbrushes often are more thorough than manual toothbrushes, are shaped specifically to remove plaque from hard-to-reach locations, and are less harmful to teeth and enamel than manual toothbrushes (which require the user to brush vigorously, sometimes causing damage).
Commit to Six-Month Dental Visits
Most dental insurance plans cover at least one dental examination per year. We recommend that patients come in every six months to ensure that their oral health is going well. These check-ups help find and fill cavities early, avoid or treat gum disease, and check for oral cancer. To schedule your visits, click here.
Floss, Floss, Floss
Most people are committed to brushing their teeth regularly, but flossing is a bit more time-consuming and may be among the first healthy habits dropped in our busy world. However, flossing is very important for your teeth and gums, as brushing does not remove all of the harmful plaque from your mouth. Make 2019 the year you start flossing, and your mouth will thank you for it!
