Dental Goals You Should Have Over the Next 12 Months
Posted on 11/9/2020 by John Black
If you are looking for ways to improve your oral hygiene or are concerned that your daily routine has been neglecting your teeth and gums, this post will outline a few ways to correct that. Here are three goals you should commit to over the next 12 months to either maintain or improve your dental health.
Commit to a Healthy Brushing Routine
You know you should brush. But are you doing it in a healthy and habitual way? Over the next 12 months, you should create and commit to a routine of brushing, flossing, and rinsing twice a day, once in the mornings and once at night. While you are brushing be aware that brushing too roughly could be counterproductive. Also, be sure to spend time focusing on the health of your gums. If your gums aren't healthy, your teeth won't be, regardless of how white and clean they appear.
Drink More Water
Water has so many natural healing powers for your body, and your mouth is no exception. Drinking water increases the saliva in your mouth which is the natural fighter against bacteria and acid residue from food and drinks. Over the next 12 months commit to drinking a glass of water after every meal and continue to drink water throughout the day. This will keep you hydrated throughout the day which will lead to increased saliva in your mouth to help protect your gums and teeth.
Two Dental Office Visits
The most important dental goal you should have over the next 12 months is scheduling two visits to our dental office. This is the best way to ensure your oral hygiene is in the best condition. Our tools are the only ones that can remove tartar, calculus, and cavities. Without proper screening with us twice a year, plaque and bacteria can grow unchecked and develop into more serious problems. Call our dental office today to schedule your two office visits for the next 12 months.
