New Year’s Resolutions for a Healthy Smile

It’s that time of the year. People resolve to eat healthy and gym memberships temporarily increase.

Did you make health-related resolutions for 2019? If so, your teeth probably were not a focus area, but it’s a good idea to include them as part of your resolve to improve your health.

Here are five resolutions for a healthy smile in 2019.

  1. Avoid gum disease with daily brushing and flossing.
  2. Get a cleaning twice a year at your Summerville dentist. Why not schedule that today if it’s been a while?
  3. Stop smoking (or don’t start!) This is a very hard habit to break but it’s one of the best things you can do for your overall health.
  4. If your smile needs brightening, talk to your dentist about getting your teeth whitened.
  5. Cut back on sugar. If eating healthy is on your list, then cutting back on sugar is probably part of that resolution. This helps your weight and your smile!
