So instead of resolving to eat nothing but lettuce for the entirety of 2012 or reducing your carbon footprint by 95% you might try one (or all) of these.
- Check your calendar and make sure you have a dental checkup scheduled. If you need one, give us a call at (989) 799-9133 or click on the button at the upper right of this page that says “make an appointment online.!” We can get you set up right away and you can feel good knowing you’re doing the right thing for your teeth!
- Floss your teeth at least once every day. I know, I know. Everyone hates flossing, but everyone needs to do it. People who floss regularly almost never have cavities in between their teeth. Remove that biofilm and your teeth will thank you!
- Brush 2-3x per day. I usually recommend morning and evening. You can supplement this with chewing sugarless gum for 5 minutes after meals during the day. This helps control acid attacks between meals.
Start small. Make the whole resolution thing nice and easy. You’ll feel better about yourself and then maybe next year you can resolve to swear off using the letter “S”. Or whatever makes you feel good.
All of us at Mead Family Dental wish you and yours a wonderful and prosperous new year. If you’re looking for a dentist in Saginaw or just have any questions for me, feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re looking forward to serving you in 2012!
