Dental Checklist from City Dental Centers
With a new year comes many resolutions for self improvement. Many choose gym memberships and some stop going after the first few months. Others choose to cut back on drinking, and find themselves breaking their resolution just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!
City Dental Centers wants to suggest a resolution often ignored: a more strict adherence to your dental hygiene. However, don’t let this be a resolution you give up on within the first few months. Cavities resulting from bad oral hygiene do not take a vacation… and neither should you!
City Dental Centers is going to review some of the most important dental activities to dedicate yourself to in the new year.
Brush Twice a Day ALWAYS
Brushing twice a day is the minimum requirement for good oral hygiene. This means in special circumstances, brushing more than twice per day may be recommended. If you’re eating a lot of candy throughout the day, such as during Easter or Halloween, brushing more than twice a day is a great idea. That being said, there should never be an excuse to brush less than twice a day. The best times are in the morning and at night. Make time and do it right!
Many adults still take issue with flossing their teeth daily. Cavities can easily form between the teeth if you do not give them the proper attention. There are many special flosses for adults who have difficulty brushing between teeth that have tight gaps. There is even a flossing tool that uses water to floss your teeth! Devices like these make flossing easy, and even fun if you can find the child in you. There is no excuse, regardless of your specific dental situation, to skip out on flossing. Just do whatever it takes to make it happen at least once daily!
Commit To a Better Diet
Most adults, with few exceptions, can’t say they couldn’t benefit from a better diet. Think about cutting back on sweets, sodas, and fast food. Spend time making health eating a priority. Your body will thank you for it… and so will your dentist when you avoid cavities!
Promote Good Habits In Your Children
Our children are the future. Make sure your kids are brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, and eat a healthy diet. Schedule your child for regular dental checkups with a reputable pediatric dentist. A good example is City Dental Kids & Braces, a new dental practice opened by the founders of City Dental Centers Dr. Sam Shahoveisi and Dr. Michael Danial. Feel free to visit their brand new website to schedule an appointment.
Your kids deserve the best. Visiting City Dental Kids & Braces with the specially trained doctors and staff will help ensure your children grow into responsible adults in taking care of their oral hygiene.
Visit Your Dentist Every Six Months
If you’re visiting the dentist properly, you should be booking two appointments in the year 2017. Many adults do not schedule regular checkups. Some adults push it out to a year. Others may not see the dentist for years! This is how hidden problems form. Get your dental visits on the calendar!
