The new year is just a few weeks away. If you’re like most Treasure Valley residents, the thought of 2022 comes with plenty of new years resolutions. Many of us write down these goals and do our best to achieve them. However, if one of your New Year’s resolutions is a healthy, beautiful smile, the Boise dentists at Summit Dental Group would like to provide you with the five following steps you can add to your lifestyle change.
Brushing your teeth twice daily is an excellent start to achieving a healthy, beautiful smile. However, it can’t stop there. The truth is that brushing doesn’t remove every food particle from in between your teeth. If you want cleaner teeth, you’ll need to commit to flossing just as regularly. Do this by keeping floss near your bathroom sink where you can see it to be reminded to floss so you don’t forget.
Brushing and flossing are two of the best ways to boost your oral health. However, a healthy smile includes eating healthy foods. Dairy products high in calcium are wonderful for your teeth. The same goes with fibrous fruits and vegetables that help scrub away plaque and other food debris. After the holidays, eating a healthy diet is a great way to start 2022 feeling healthy and strong.
If you want a healthier, beautiful smile this coming year, it’s essential to decrease your sugar intake. The best way to do this is by reducing how much candy and sweet treats you eat. Instead, try substituting sugary snacks with fruits and sparkling water instead of soda. Not only will this boost your overall health, but it will also significantly decrease the risks of developing tooth decay and cavities.
If your teeth look dull and yellow, shine them up for the new year with a professional teeth whitening treatment. At Summit Dental Group, our Boise dentists can help add some polish and confidence to an already beautiful smile. During your next appointment, ask us about our teeth whitening options. We would be more than happy to help!
If your smile is suffering from aging, accidents, decay, or disease, then you could benefit from a best smile restoration at Summit Dental. Our Boise dentists are dedicated to providing you with a beautiful, natural smile that lasts.
Last but not least, if you haven’t visited the dentist in a while, now is the time to schedule an appointment. This is especially true if you are experiencing any pain or sensitivity to address any problems before they get worse. At Summit Dental Group, our Boise dentists would love to help you and your family start the New Year off right by achieving your dental health goals in 2022.
