3 Goals Your Smile Won’t Regret In 2019
- Posted on: Jan 15 2019
With so many people setting goals to go to the gym everyday or only eat kale for dinner, you may be rolling your eyes. Rather than setting goals that you may or may not keep, Dr. Paul Peterson has a few resolutions that are easy for everyone to both try and succeed at.
Brush Your Teeth Twice a Day
We aren’t asking you to take your toothbrush to work with you (even though it’s a good idea) or to even give up sugar, but if you don’t already, make sure that you brush your teeth at least twice a day. Brushing your teeth is a great way for you to fight off cavities, gum disease, bad breath, and a host of other oral issues as well.
Try a Water Flosser
Dr. Peterson recommends water flossers to patients who either have a track record of never flossing or for patients who have braces or retainers. If you have never tried a water flosser, you’re in for a treat. By using pressurized water, these flossers work to get food and bacteria out of your teeth.
Get Regular Cleanings
An easy resolution for you to make is to get regular dental cleanings. The American Dental Association recommends that patients get their teeth cleaned every six months which means that if you haven’t had your teeth cleaned in a while, it’s time.
Taking good care of your mouth doesn’t have to be difficult. Use the tips listed in this article to make sure that your teeth stay clean and healthy all year long. To learn more, contact our Park City office at (435) 658-0678.
