Happy New Year! Is improving your dental health one of your 2023 resolutions? If it isn’t, it should be! There are a few things you can work on implementing to prevent tooth, gum and other oral health issues, and create a healthier, happier smile.

  1. Drink more water.

Staying hydrated is a key component of having a healthy mouth! Water rinses away bacteria and food debris, helps restore enamel, fights dry mouth and more. You should aim to drink half of your body weight in ounces a day!

  1. Keep up on your cleaning techniques.

Brushing twice and flossing once every day is essential in fighting against cavities, removing plaque buildup and more. If you need to brush up on your technique, don’t be afraid to ask your dentist about proper brushing and flossing methods!

  1. Eat more fruits and veggies.

Most people make resolutions to eat healthier each year, but did you know healthy eating also plays a huge role in your oral health? Crisp fruits and veggies help keep your breath and teeth clean and fresh, and cutting back on acidic, sugary food and drinks will prevent damaged enamel, tooth decay and diseases.

  1. Schedule regular dental visits.

The American Dental Association recommends visiting the dentist twice a year (about every 6 months). Start the New Year on the right foot with a routine dental visit to get a thorough cleaning and check for any existing or potential issues you can take care of right away.

Let 2023 be the year you enjoy a happier, healthier smile and mouth! If you’re overdue for a dental visit, schedule your appointment with our office today! Dr. Stante would be honored to provide the services and care you need for optimal oral and overall health.
