New Years Resolutions Your Teeth Will Love

by televoxweb on Friday, January 1, 2016 12:17 AM

Let's be honest: we could all take a little better care of our teeth. Life moves fast, and it's all too easy to neglect caring oral and orthodontic care - sometimes flossing falls by the wayside, we forget to clean our Invisalign aligners, or we don't wear our retainers as much as we ought to. We understand how this happens, but it's important to remember how important orthodontic and oral care is, as it’s vital to maintaining your most valuable asset: your smile! The New Year is almost here, and that presents a great opportunity for renewing our commitment to orthodontic health. For this blog, we'll give you a few ideas for New Years Resolutions your teeth are sure to love.

  • Floss: Flossing is probably the most neglected part of caring for teeth, and that's unfortunate - because without flossing, you're leaving more than 30% of your tooth surface exposed and unprotected against harmful acids, bacteria, and plaque. Make 2016 a great year for your teeth by resolving to floss every day without fail.
  • Say No To Soda: Here's one that's great for your teeth and your body - quit soda! Soda contains dyes that stain teeth, acids that eat away at enamel, and loads of sugar that pack the pounds on to your body. Quitting soda is a great way to help your teeth, but if that seems too daunting, try limiting yourself to one a day or a few a week.
  • A New Smile: Here's the best orthodontic resolution of all - a brand new, beautiful smile! And at Arthur Orthodontics, we can make this one a reality. We offer a wide variety of orthodontic treatments including Damon Braces, Invisalign, and AcceleDent accelerated treatment, so getting a new smile has never been easier. Best of all, your initial consultation is completely free - so what have you got to lose?
