Make Some Resolutions For Your Smile In 2019 With Our Cheney Dentists

Written by Dr. Collins on Dec 25, 2018

It’s that time of year: the time when we all reflect on our habits and goals, and set some resolutions! As you move into 2019, our Cheney dentists encourage you to set some attainable and health-boosting goals for your smile. There are a number of things that you can do to make sure you enjoy your best smile ever this upcoming year.

  • Take a look at your at-home dental routine
  • The first thing to consider is whether there are any tweaks or upgrades you can make to your daily oral hygiene routine. Maybe it’s time to switch out some old tools, like toothbrushes or waterpiks. Or, perhaps you’d benefit from incorporating a mouth rinse, or specific formulation of toothpaste; talk to your dentist to learn more!

  • Seek treatment for any lingering oral health issues right away
  • Don’t carry existing oral infections or dental damage into the new year; now is the perfect time to give your smile a clean slate. Treatments like custom crowns, dental bonding, and veneers all deliver results quickly and affordably.

  • Schedule your semi-annual cleanings
  • The American Dental Association recommends that patients of all ages complete professional cleanings at least every six months. It’s so easy to fall behind on this schedule, so, work with your dental team to get these semi-annual check-ups on the books right now.

  • Commit to drinking more water
  • If there’s one simple habit that can help revitalize your smile, it’s drinking more water. Water is a much healthier choice for your dental health than juices, coffee, tea, and soft drinks. Additionally, when you are well-hydrated, your body is able to produce plenty of saliva, which works to neutralize bacteria and re-mineralize enamel.

    As always, our Cheney dentists are here to give you any additional information and guidance that you may need. Give us a call to get started!
