It’s a new year offering a new beginning to us all as we journey through the unknown adventures this New Year will bring us. That is why it’s the perfect time of year to start anew making new resolutions and goals as we go forward with life. Here are five of the most popular New Year resolutions and how your smile is the solution to them all:
Most people are aware that a healthy diet can have tremendous effects on your overall health. When you eat, the nutrients in your food are first broken down by your teeth as you chew and absorb the substances. According to the American Dental Association, if your nutrition is poor, the first signs of a poor diet show up in your oral cavity before they appear in other parts of your body. By eating healthier, you are not only maintaining positive oral health for your teeth, but you are also promoting a healthy diet and weight loss for your overall health and happiness.
Smoking is another popular resolution. While it is widely known that smoking and tobacco is unhealthy, it still is extremely difficult to quit because of the addictive nature. Tobacco is not only bad for your oral health, but your overall health as well. Tobacco irritates gum tissue and adds to bad breath. Tobacco also irritates your gums and increases your risk to gum disease.
Fall in Love
It is often known that your smile is the first thing people notice when they see you. If you do not feel your smile is confident, then this is the perfect time to change that feature. When you have a confident smile, it shows in your everyday life. Talk to your dentist about options on how to improve your smile with simple procedures such as teeth whitening or clear braces to help you get the perfect bright smile you always wanted.
Spend Less Money; Save More Money
By taking proper steps to maintain oral care, you are preventing serious conditions to arrive that are costly to correct yet easily avoided. Brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes a day is the recommended time to brush. Flossing daily is another important aspect of oral health. Without flossing, you are causing plaque to build up and tarter to develop that can cause gum disease, tooth loss, tooth aches, and other serious problems to your oral health. That is why maintaining positive oral health will help you spend less money on oral care, while saving more money by avoiding costly dental damage.
