New Year's Resolutions That are Also Good for Your Teeth

Posted by Dental Health PC on Jan 2 2023, 08:39 PM

Your oral health has a big impact on your overall wellness, meaning that improving your oral hygiene benefits more than just your teeth. Dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease have been linked to other health conditions such as stroke, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and more1. By following through with your oral care routine every day, you’re taking an important step in protecting your health.

The new year is the perfect time to start fresh with your oral health habits. In addition to brushing and flossing at least twice each day (ideally after meals and before bed), it’s also important to schedule regular cleanings and checkups with your dentist in Corvallis, OR. These visits allow our staff to remove any plaque or tartar buildup from your teeth. Plus, we can also provide professional teeth cleaning and polishing to prevent stains and keep your smile looking bright. 

Eat Healthy

Start the year off right by starting new habits that benefit your teeth and gums. A nutritious diet is important to your oral health and overall health, so resolve to eat healthy in 2023! Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins and minerals, which are great for building strong teeth. Calcium is one of the most important minerals for your teeth, so be sure to include dairy products like milk or cheese in your diet. Protein is not only important for building muscle but also for the growth of enamel; find a protein source you enjoy, whether it’s lean meats, nuts, eggs, or something else, and eat plenty of it in the new year! Avoiding sugar is also important to your dental health; try to avoid sweets while snacking, and try to stay away from sugary drinks like soda. These beverages can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss. Resolve to eating a healthy diet this new year to keep your smile going strong for years to come!

Use Fluoride Toothpaste

Most adults in the United States use some form of fluoride in their toothpaste and mouthwash, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fluoride can actually strengthen the enamel of your teeth and prevent decay. So even if your resolution is to stop using tobacco or drinking alcohol, keep brushing your teeth with fluoride to prevent tooth decay.
