How to Keep Your Dental Health Resolutions

White notecard titled 2018 goals and numbered one through three with a blue pen sitting on top.

Something about ringing in the new year often inspires us to better ourselves and establish resolutions. Perhaps weight loss, a body detox, or improving your memory are just a few things that top your list – but don’t forget a resolution that can contribute to your overall wellness and self-esteem. That is, of course, maintaining exemplary dental health! At Romeoville Dental Center, we are rooting for you to practice consistent dental hygiene for a more confident smile and a healthy new year. We have a few simple tips on how you can be all about achieving those dental health goals.

Be Conscious of the Way You Brush

Your toothbrush does a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to keeping your teeth squeaky clean. So how we brush can determine our dental hygiene. Be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time. And as you make your way through as much surface area as you can reach, position the toothbrush bristles at a 45-degree angle toward the gum line for best results. Also, by using a fluoride toothpaste, you can help protect your teeth from possibly decay!

Floss Every Day

While brushing your teeth is crucial to keeping the cavities at bay, flossing is equally as important for preventing a host of dental problems like periodontal disease, halitosis, and more. It allows you to get into the difficult-to-reach places of your teeth that your toothbrush simply can’t, especially in between your teeth where bacteria thrives. Make it a habit to floss daily by keeping your floss near your toothbrush so you have easy access to it without having to think about it.

Eat Better for Your Teeth

If eating healthier is one of your resolutions, make sure to keep your teeth in mind! This year, try to consume a healthy amount of foods rich in vitamin C and D, which is known to help fortify your teeth and bones. Strive to reduce your sugar intake to avoid further bacteria breeding that can cause cavities and tooth loss.

Routine Dental Visits

It’s recommended that your routine check-ups take place every six months. These dental visits allow your dentist and dental hygienist to monitor for any cavities or detect any oral diseases that might be in their early stages. In 2018, take charge of your oral health by giving us a call today for an appointment!

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
