With 2013 just around the corner, you may have already started thinking about some resolutions for the coming year. Maybe you want to eat healthier, learn a foreign language, or spend more time with the family.
This year, let’s shake things up a bit and try a dental resolution. Here are some of our favourites:
> Floss Daily
Flossing is so beneficial. It helps prevent gum disease, cavities, and helps keep the rest of your body healthy too.
> Stop Smoking
Smoking can be damaging to your oral and overall health. It can increase your risk of gum disease, discolour your teeth, and can lead to cancer, heart disease, and emphysema.
> Avoid Using Your Teeth as Tools
Using your teeth to open packages, bottles, or anything else can cause your teeth to weaken, chip, and even break. Protect your teeth and use the correct tool instead.
> Wear a Seat Belt
Seat belts not only save lives, they protect your mouth from minor accidents, including chipped, broken, and dislodged teeth.
> Don’t Put off the Dentist
This year make dental health a top priority. Visit your dentist regularly and your mouth will reward you.
