Dental Resolutions – 2015 Edition

Did everyone have a fun holiday? Did you happen to make any resolutions for 2015 that would make your dentists or orthodontist smile? Well we have a couple good suggestions in case you are still trying to fill out your list.

Eat healthy diet

A healthy diet is very important in maintaining good health. Fruits, vegetable and dairy products help fight bacteria that cause gum disease.

Control your sweet tooth

Sugary snacks and beverages are your teeth’s worst enemy. The sugars break down in your mouth and produce acids that dissolve away your enamel and cause tooth decay. Make it your goal to limit the amount of sugars you eat.

Brush and floss regularly

Brushing and flossing your teeth are the first line of defense against oral health complications. If you don’t brush and floss as recommended, plaque can develop on and between teeth causing decay and gum disease, which can in turn lead to other health problems like heart disease. Dentists recommend brushing twice a day and flossing once each day. If your dental hygiene habits are lacking, step up your game in 2015 by brushing and flossing regularly. You can also come by our office in Parker, CO and speak with our dentist about you and your child’s habits.

Check in with your dentist

Let this year be the year you check in with your dentist 2 or 3 times this year. Your mouth will thank you for the attention.
