With 2018 behind us and 2019 just beginning there’s no better time to set your sights on some resolutions and plans for the New Year. An abundance of people make New Year’s resolutions to key in on improving their physical health, consuming a more nutritious diet, or reducing stress. While these are all rewarding endeavors many people often overlook the importance of oral health. Although it may not be as popular, maintaining dental health holds many advantages which are extremely beneficial, meaning it should be one of your top resolutions for this year.
1. Maintaining Oral Health Is Critically Important
A frequently overlooked aspect of maintaining excellent overall health is keeping your mouth clean, with proper hygiene.
Use the beginning to this New Year as an opportunity to improve your oral health by focusing on brushing your teeth and flossing. Dentists recommend that you brush your teeth twice per day while flossing at least once per day. These habits will allow you to remove plaque, which is formed by food left-over from eating. By practicing these habits, you can block the formation of cavities, as well as improving your overall oral health.
If you want to start the New Year off fresh, then consider scheduling a visit to Wise Orthodontics. It is a great resolution, because you have the potential to improve your dental health. The orthodontist will explain how orthodontic treatment could benefit you. Additionally, by scheduling an appointment, and getting braces at the beginning of the year you allow yourself plenty of time to schedule follow up appointments before spots fill up. This allows you to adjust to your schedule, while also ensuring that you get the right care that you need, to achieve the smile that you have always wanted.
2. Boosting Your Appearance
Many people do not like the way their smile looks. Whether their teeth are crooked, or out of alignment, an orthodontist can help your smile look amazing. Getting braces can allow you to attain the perfect smile that you have been dreaming of. Or if you previously had braces but did not wear your retainer, orthodontists can give you Invisalign. Whatever your situation dictates, know that getting braces will allow you to improve your appearance, and wear your smile with confidence.
3. Improving Your Self-Confidence
If you are like many people who have not had their teeth straightened it can take a blow to your self-esteem and confidence. That is why getting braces can be a truly incredible process because it often encourages you to become more confident in yourself simply by correcting a smile.
