The New Year is an exciting time when many of us plan self-improvements, but don’t forget about your dental hygiene. Read our top dental tips to help you begin the New Year with a healthier smile.
Improve Your Oral Hygiene Habits
There’s no mystery about looking after your teeth as it’s essential to brush twice daily to keep them strong and healthy. We are sure this is advice you have heard time and again. Also, make sure you change your toothbrush regularly, and the New Year is the ideal time to have a brand-new brush.
You need to floss once-a-day as brushing your teeth only reaches about two-thirds of tooth surfaces. If you fail to floss, bacteria will build up in between your teeth, increasing the risk of gum disease, a serious condition that can negatively affect general health.
Choose Healthier Foods for a Healthier Smile
Eating healthily can benefit overall health and your smile. Ensure you keep your teeth beautifully white and strong by limiting sugary snacks and drinks. At this time of year, make the most of fresh fruits and vegetables which are packed full of fibre that can help clean plaque from teeth and freshen breath. They also contain antioxidants and other nutrients that help fight bacteria and infection and inflammation.
