HAPPY NEW YEAR! 4 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR ORAL HEALTH IN 2020.

This coming new year, aside from making resolutions to lose weight and live a healthier life, you will need to remember to take care of your oral health because it is as important as your overall health! Beautiful teeth and a healthy mouth can have a significant impact on your appearance, how you present yourself, and even how people see you.

So, for this coming year, why don’t you invest more time and effort in taking care of oral health? One key to achieving such heights is to stay motivated. For you to follow through with healthy dental routines, here are four ways you can do so.

1) Set reminders for yourself

If you want to maintain your motivation, you can set daily reminders on your mobile phones and enable your notifications. It’s easy to forget the little aspects of your routines, especially when you’re too tired or busy. If you’re not keen on setting mobile reminders, write them on sticky notes and post it on places where you can easily spot it. When you’re constantly reminded of goals, you’ll be motivated to push toward it. So, keep those reminders until it becomes routine for you.

For example, using floss or inter dental brushes as part of your oral health routine may take some getting used to, but once you see the impact of these excellent aids, it will become routine.

2) Always have a mouthwash

Many people fail to realize that using mouthwash is a necessity. In fact, it is useful in cleaning the mouth and reaching places in your mouth that your toothbrush can’t reach. Make it a habit to always bring a mouthwash with you wherever you go. You can find a compact mouthwash that is available in stores so that it will not take up too much space in your bag or in your car.

Our recommended mouthwashes include any containing fluoride as a general mouthwash. For gum specific rinses, we advise Corsodyl Daily and Curasept which both have 0.05% chlorhexidine gluconate which is anti plaque.

3)Bring dental floss

Flossing is one of the most forgotten dental habits, yet it’s vital to the maintenance of your oral health. It’s best to bring dental floss with you wherever you go. Put it in a place where you can easily see it, so you’ll be reminded that you have to floss your teeth. You can have dental floss in the office or even in your car.

4)Commit to a healthier diet

One of your new year’s resolutions may include losing a few pounds or maintaining a healthy diet. An active lifestyle is often the solution to this and also eating less. Aside from committing to an active lifestyle and eating less, it is more imperative that you commit to a healthier diet instead. Reduce your consumption of junk food because they can cause cavities and plaque build up to form in your mouth. Instead, focus on eating more nutritious food that will help you prevent cavities and, at the same time, make you feel better about yourself.

These are only several of the ways that can keep you motivated to adopt healthier dental habits in the coming year. Remember, you should visit your dentist at least every six months for routine check ups and dental cleaning as well.

This upcoming year, commit to these essential habits. Remember that good oral hygiene can boost your confidence and even enhance your appearance.
