New Year’s Resolutions for Optimal Oral Health
Preventative Dentistry Berkeley
There’s no better place to focus your healthy habits than in your mouth! Make 2017 the year you take a stand for total wellness by following these easy tips for optimum oral health.
Start from Scratch
Scratch your old toothbrush and get a new one today! Did you know that your toothbrush should be changed every 3 months, and especially after you’ve been sick? Choose a brush made from eco-friendly materials like bamboo or recycled plastic, always recycle old brushes, and make this January better for your mouth and the planet.
Water that is. Adults need at least 1 liter of water a day, and after the holidays many of us have gotten out of the water habit. Dust off that reusable water bottle, and make a point to refill it throughout the day.
Floss Floss Floss!
Make flossing a New Years’ resolution you can keep. It literally takes a minute. Once you get in the flossing habit, you’ll love how good your gums feel and how much fresher your breath smells, and you’ll know you’re keeping dangerous bacteria out of your mouth and your bloodstream.
