Here are a few of our New Year's Resolutions for a Healthy Smile:

  • Eat Plenty of Fruits and Vegetables ~ Eating well is important for your dental health!
  • Quit Smoking or Using Other Tobacco Products ~ Tobacco use can can cause tooth discolaration, cavities, gum disease, oral and lung cancer, gum recession and tooth loss!
  • Limit Your Alcohol Intake ~ Excessive alcohol intake may also contribute to increased gum recession!
  • Brush at Least Twice a Day & Floss at Least Once a Day ~ Without proper brushing & flossing, you may develop red, swollen, bleeding gums, which will lead to gum disease!
  • See Your Dentist for Regular Checkups ~ By visiting your dentist at least twice a year, you can prevent any dental health problems before they cause discomfort and expensive treatment!
