As we jump into the new year, our Novato dentists are here to help you prioritize your oral health along with your other resolutions. Here are some fast, simple steps you can take to make 2020 your smile’s best year yet!
Replace Old Dental Tools
The first step is to make sure that you are using the right toothbrush and dental tools for the job. If you have been using your current brush for more than three or four months, it’s time to replace it with a new one. Take the time to find a replacement brush that is right for you. For most people, it is a good idea to use a toothbrush with soft or medium strength bristles. You also want to make sure that the head of the brush reaches all the way back to your molars. Your dental team can give you further guidance if you don’t know what type of brush is best for you.
Make A Plan For Professional Care
We all get busy; it can be all too easy to fall behind with professional dental care. So, as we are all gearing up for the new year, now is the perfect time to get your professional dental cleanings and assessments on the books.
Commit to Healthy Habits
Adopting a few new healthy habits can make a big difference to your oral health this year. Support optimal dental health by:
- Drinking plenty of water throughout the day
- Rinsing your smile after eating
- Using floss in lieu of wooden or metal toothpicks
- Consuming sugary or acidic substances all at once, rather than sipping or snacking throughout the day
