The new year is the best time to set goals for yourself for the remainder of the year. Virginia Beach, VA dentist Dr. Brent Moses and his dental care team encourage patients to take this time to reevaluate their dental health. Try setting dental health resolutions to maintain throughout the year and watch how your dental health can improve. If you have any questions regarding your oral health or you need to schedule a routine dental checkup, contact Bayside Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry in Virginia Beach, VA.
Oral Health Resolutions
- Schedule your biannual dental checkups. During a dental checkup, Dr. Moses can thoroughly examine your teeth, mouth, and gums. During your visit, Dr. Moses will also screen your smile for complex dental problems like gum disease, oral cancer, and TMJ disorder. Dental checkups are put into place as a way to help patients maintain a healthy smile and catch any early signs of dental issues so that your dentist can provide the appropriate treatment needed to restore your smile.
- Incorporate flossing into your daily oral hygiene routine. Flossing is a great way to keep your teeth and gums healthy as well as minimize your chance of developing gum disease.
- Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes a day. You’d be surprised at the number of patients who only brush their teeth once a day or not at all. Brushing is a great way to keep your breath fresh and minimize the amount of plaque buildup that accumulates on your teeth.
- Try to incorporate foods and drinks that are great for the teeth. Try to cut back on the amount of sugar your consume because if you don’t properly clean your teeth, it can lead to tooth decay and cavities.
