At Passes Dental Care, we believe everyone deserves a smile they’re proud of, and our mission is to help patients throughout Great Neck, NY and the surrounding areas achieve one. But as important as the high-quality dental treatments we provide are, how you care for your smile matters just as much. The New Year is a wonderful opportunity to make positive changes in your life for a better, healthier you, and if you’re ready to achieve a brighter smile in 2020, here are 5 dental resolutions that will help you get there.
5 Dental New Year’s Resolutions
Want a healthier, more beautiful smile in the coming year? It’s not as hard as you think. Adopt these 5 resolutions to keep your smile healthy and strong in the new year:
- Schedule Your Dental Check-Ups: You should see your Great Neck dentist at least twice a year for a dental exam and teeth cleaning appointment, so get a jump on things by scheduling your 2020 appointments now.
- Floss Before You Brush: We all know that flossing daily is vital to a healthy smile, but it’s easy to let this slide. This year, try flossing before you brush your teeth instead of after – many patients find this makes it easier to avoid neglecting to floss.
- Cut Back on Sugar: Sugary foods contribute to the production of cavity-causing acids in the mouth, so this year, work to reduce your sugar intake and opt for healthier foods like vegetables.
- Stick to Water: Dark-colored drinks like coffee and red wine can stain the teeth and contribute to cavities, so making a commitment to drink more water is a great way to support your dental health.
- Try Teeth Whitening: We believe that you deserve a beautiful smile as much as a healthy one, so why not try teeth whitening in the new year? It’s a great way to completely revitalize your smile in just one dental appointment!
