Check out some steps you can take this year for a healthier smile and resolve to take better care of your teeth.

  • Floss – Make sure to floss daily. Yes, every day! Flossing is important to help remove plaque and food buildup that your toothbrush can’t reach.
  • Eat More Fruits and Veggies – By eating more fruits and vegetables and less processed sugars, you will minimize the damage sugar can cause to your teeth.
  • Drink More Water – Water is great for your teeth for many reasons. The fluoride in water strengthens your teeth and helps prevent cavities. It also helps wash away sugars and food build up and dilutes acid that can damage your teeth. Finally, water helps with dry mouth. Just as the name implies, dry mouth occurs when saliva levels are low in the mouth. Since saliva naturally helps prevent tooth decay, keeping your mouth moist is very important.
