Four New Year's Resolutions for Healthy Teeth
The new year is almost upon us, and that means it’s time to start thinking
about what changes you’d like to make in your life. Many people will commit to
a new diet, exercise routine, or hobby, which is a great way to kickstart
personal growth and happiness. A great way to enhance your health is to
commit to an oral hygiene routine in the new year. If you’ve been neglecting
healthy habits for your mouth, the new year is the perfect time to start.
Get in touch with us at Hilltop Dental, the best dentist in Danbury, to learn
more about how you can keep your teeth healthy in the new year. For now,
here are four resolutions that will help you keep your teeth in tip-top shape for
• Make healthier eating choices. Cut back on the sugary snacks this year. Tooth
decay strikes more rapidly when you’re eating a lot of sugar. Choose sugar-free
snacks, drinks, and chew sugar-free gum to produce saliva and strengthen your
enamel. Also, take care to avoid overly acidic foods. Too much acid contributes
to tooth decay, so make sure that you give your teeth a good brushing after an
acidic snack. Chew sugar-free gum to help neutralize the acids. You can also
eat foods that will help strengthen your teeth. Leafy greens are high in calcium,
which is an essential ingredient for a healthy smile. Fibrous foods are good for
your body and will help your mouth create more saliva to scrub away plaque
and strengthen your teeth.
• Improve your brushing and flossing habits. To maintain your oral health, you
should be brushing and flossing every day. Brushing should happen at least
twice a day! Position your brush at a 45-degree angle toward the gumline and
move it across the teeth. Incorporate flossing daily to remove food that has
accumulated between your teeth. Flossing is an excellent way to prevent gum
disease. Your toothbrush should be replaced every 3-4 months or whenever the
bristles get frayed. Brushing and flossing every day will prevent health
problems such as gingivitis, bad breath, and cavities.
• Quit using tobacco products. Tobacco is responsible for a wide variety of
serious health issues. Smoking doubles your risk for gum disease, and tobacco
will stain and damage your teeth. There are many tools in the world to help you
kick your tobacco habit. Reach out to friends and loved ones who will help you
make the change.
• Commit to routine dental visits. Regular dental visits will help you maintain
good oral health. Contact the team at Hilltop Dental to schedule your New
