The New Year can bring a lot of change into your life! Resolutions are incredible and can be life-changing. If you are considering a New Years’ Resolution like getting in shape, focusing on your mental health, exploring new job opportunities, or reconnecting with friends or family, ensure one area you don’t forget to include – your mouth!
Don’t neglect your teeth and gums when planning your New Year’s resolutions! You only have 36 teeth, and every one of them is crucial! Everyone should make a conscious effort to improve their daily and yearly dental plans! Here are a few great ideas to get you started:
- Brush a Full Two Minutes, Twice a Day!
Two minutes twice a day is only 4 out of the 1,440 minutes in one day! These four minutes are vital to your teeth’s wellness. Use a timer or an electric toothbrush with a built-in timer to ensure you are brushing for the recommended time!
- Floss Every Day!
Everyone has been told, once or twice or three times, by their dentist or dental hygienist to floss more; that is because everyone should be flossing more! Flossing decreases the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Flossing can even help you have fresher breath!
- Avoid Staining Foods!
If tooth discoloration is bothersome to you, teeth whitening can help, but the results won’t last if you don’t reduce your intake of staining foods and beverages. Staining culprits include but are not limited to coffee, wine, tea, cokes, berries, chocolate, and more! If this list contains some of your favorites and elimination is impossible, try to reduce consumption or drink out of straws!
