It’s about that time to make a new resolution for the upcoming year. Did you ever think about making a resolution that helps your smile? If not, you have now! There are many resolutions you can make to help you have healthier teeth and gums. Our dentist, Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta, encourages you to make one of those resolutions to help your smile. Some dental resolution ideas include:

-Brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes (This can help you have a healthier smile, better breath, fewer cavities and dental problems, and even a more attractive smile)

-Flossing once a day (This can help you prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Flossing is vital for a top-notch oral health)

-Chewing sugar-free gum throughout the day (This can help you increase saliva flow, which can help you wash away bacteria and prevent cavities)

-Eating a healthy and balanced diet (Eating tooth-healthy foods can help you have a stronger and healthier smile)

-Drinking more fluoridated water (Fluoride can strengthen and nourish your tooth enamel and help you prevent dental issues)

-Visiting your dentist regularly (Your routine dental cleaning and exam appointments are very important for the smile you need)
