New Year, New Habits

It maybe February all read but it’s never to late to think about committing to a healthier 2019.  Studies show that there’s a strong correlation between dental health and the health of the rest of your body, so make your dental hygiene a priority this year, starting with these three resolutions.

#1: Make Daily Flossing a Habitphoenix dentist

It takes 28 days to form a habit, so if you can make it to all March with daily flossing, you’ll be set when it comes to daily flossing.  Commit to those 28 days, and enjoy healthier gums, better breath, and cleaner teeth.

#2: Brush Your Teeth Twice a Day

It’s easy to run out the door during a hectic morning or to collapse into bed after a long day without thinking about the health of your teeth.  But taking the two minutes to give your teeth a thorough brushing will both keep your teeth in good shape and prevent bad breath.

#3: Cut Back on Sugar

While cutting back on sugar is a good thing for your entire body, there’s a direct connection between sugar consumption and tooth decay.  Lessening your intake of sweet, especially sticky treats can go a long way toward improving both your dental and overall health.

#4: Schedule and Keep Your Semi-Annual Dental Visits

We know dental visits aren’t tops on the list of fun things to look forward to.  But neither are root canals, tooth decay and tooth loss.  Scheduling two appointments every year, every six months, and making sure you get to those appointments will keep your mouth in good shape and ensure any small problems are taken care of before they become big, expensive problems.
