Happy new year!
As you set your intentions for 2019, now is the perfect time to set some resolutions related to your smile. Our Glendale dentists have some tips and suggestions on steps to take as you kick off your new year. Let’s get started!
- Replace oral hygiene tools
Now is the perfect time to trade those old and tired oral hygiene tools for fresh and clean replacements. Old toothbrushes, for example, can harbor bacteria, along with becoming less effective over time. Start the new year off with effective tools that can get the job done.
- Assess your at-home dental routine
Talk to your dentist about whether your daily oral hygiene routine is sufficient to meet your needs. The American Dental Association’s general recommendation is that is that patients brush morning and night, and floss at least once a day. Your needs may vary depending on the current state of your smile.
- Schedule your semi-annual cleanings
We know that it can be easy to let your dental schedule slip as you go about your busy life. So, take this opportunity to schedule your semi-annual cleanings and assessments with your dental team—get them on the calendar now!
- Address any lingering oral health issues immediately
If you have been putting off fixing that broken tooth or getting that filling, our dental team will help you get your smile back on track in an expedient manner. We offer treatments to help you give your smile a clean slate as you start your new year.
- Make a schedule to drink water
Here’s a simple healthy habit that will help not only your smile, but your whole-body health as well—commit to drinking more water! Water not only fleshes out dental debris and bacteria, it also ramps up saliva production.
You deserve a healthy and happy smile in 2019! Give our Glendale dentists a call to schedule a check-up or consultation!
