New year, New you: New Year’s Resolutions for a Healthy Smile
With the new year approaching, you may have already begun to think about your New Year’s resolutions. You may be considering resolving to save money, get a better job or lose weight. Many people set new goals about having a healthier lifestyle in the new year. Why not make one of your New Year’s resolutions improving your dental health. Call our office to keep THIS New Year’s resolution!
BRUSH AT LEAST TWICE A DAY AND FLOSS AT LEAST ONCE A DAY
Brushing and flossing protect your teeth from decay and gum disease, which is caused by your teeth’s most persistent enemy, plaque – a sticky, colorless, invisible film of harmful bacteria that builds up on your teeth every day. Both brushing and flossing are equally important for good oral health: according to the Academy of General Dentistry, only flossing can remove plaque from between teeth and below the gumline, where decay and gum disease often begins.
Without proper brushing and flossing, you may develop bleeding gums, which may worsen to severely swollen, red, bleeding gums (gingivitis) and, eventually, gum disease. Because diseases of the mouth can affect the rest of your body, it is especially important to maintain good oral health.
SEE YOUR DENTIST FOR REGULAR CHECKUPS
By seeing your dentist at least twice a year, you can help prevent any dental health problems before they cause discomfort or require more comprehensive or expensive treatment. Regular visits allow your dentist to monitor your oral health and recommend a dental health regimen to address areas of concern.
For this new year, resolve to treat your mouth right: improve your diet, quit smoking and improve your oral hygiene habits – your teeth and your body will thank you for it!
What Our Patients Are Saying
Monica and Elizabeth made cleaning and x-RAYS tolerable. We laughed the whole time. Dr Mark was clear and concise. Everyone there has a great sense of humor. I hate going to the dentist but this trip was my best experience to date.
Friendly staff, exceptional patient care
The office is well-appointed, relaxing and the staff treat everyone like family. It's also nice to not feel 'judged' when my dental status is not textbook. Never had a dentist before that didn't give me the hairy eyeball over not flossing every day. I like their holistic approach to health, not just teeth.
Aesthetic Dentistry was professional and accommodating for a dental emergency I experienced. From Emily to Hannah to Dr Duncan I was extremely impressed with not only the customer service but the professionalism and the empathy for my work schedule. Their dental techniques are the best available providing a seamless and pain free experience. I HIGHLY recommend their practice!!
A++. Lovely people in this practice, true gentle dentistry and care. Would recommend anyone, especially someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a while and is nervous. Doctor personally calls his patients the evening of your appointment to follow up. 😎
