Starting the Year Right: Tips for Achieving a Beautiful Smile

December 19, 2023 7:05 pm

The start of the new year is the perfect time to get and stay on top of the health of your smile. While it can be jarring to leave holiday mode and hop back into business, High Point Dentistry is here to help make maintaining your smile second nature with three easy tips for achieving a beautiful smile.

1. Brush Up on Your Nutrition!

Limiting sugar, getting in plenty of crunchy fruits and vegetables, and staying hydrated are great ways to watch out for your waistline, but did you know that these steps also help protect your teeth and gums? A balanced and healthy diet provides you with the nutrition your mouth needs to regulate itself, and the foods you eat while doing so can also help to scrub and clean your teeth as you eat them.

2. Make Oral Hygiene a Routine

Setting up a routine makes things second nature. If you’ve struggled before with keeping up with or making time for oral hygiene, doing so at the same time each day can help you develop a consistent oral care routine that keeps plaque and bad breath at bay. Your routine should include at least 2 minutes of brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush followed by flossing. Anti-bacterial mouthwashes are also a great supplement to add to brushing and flossing.

3. See Your Dentist

If you saw your dentist during the holidays, it’s probably not quite time for your check-up. If you didn’t get to see your dentist during the holidays, scheduling an appointment for an exam and cleaning gives both you and your dentist the information needed to keep your smile beautiful until your next visit.
