Out with the old, in with the new! January offers us a fresh beginning so what better time to make your New Year’s Dental Resolutions to start or maintain healthy habits in the year ahead!
Take It Easy
A softer touch is best when it comes to dental care. Gentle brushing helps clean your teeth of bacteria and food particles without the harmful pressure on your gums that can be the result of brushing too hard.
It’s Not Hard To Brush Correctly
You don’t need hard bristles to get the job done. Soft bristles do the job well without the harshness of a hard bristled toothbrush.
When In Doubt, Toss It Out
Toothbrush looking a little worn? Are the bristles frayed or broken? The ADA recommends switching to a new toothbrush every 3-4 months.
Take Your Time
Brushing your teeth shouldn’t be something you rush through. You should be brushing twice daily for a full two minutes to provide the best dental support for your teeth.
Don’t Forget To Floss
Floss is an important tool in your dental care kit! Remember to floss daily to remove plaque and food particles from areas that a toothbrush can’t reach.
