Celebrate The New Year With A Healthier Smile [BLOG]

Our team at Bayou Dental Group in Monroe, LA hopes you had a wonderful holiday!

Even though the presents have all been opened, the celebrating isn’t over.

We want to help you start the new year off on the right foot with some tips about improving your oral health so you can have a strong, beautiful smile for all the new years to come!

Celebrate The New Year With A Healthier Smile!

Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind that will provide a framework for building a healthier smile in 2019!

*Renew Your Commitment To Daily Oral Care*

As studies have shown, a healthy body needs a healthy mouth.

That’s why your New Year’s resolution to adopt a healthier lifestyle should include a renewed commitment to your daily oral care.

Along with eating a more well-balanced, nutritious diet, losing weight, and getting in better shape, you’ll want to make sure to follow the American Dental Association’s recommendations for a good oral hygiene regimen, such as:

*Choose a fluoridated toothpaste.

*Use a soft-bristle toothbrush.

*Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day.

*Floss at least once per day.

You also want to make sure you drink plenty of water each day to prevent dry mouth. That’s because a lack of saliva will leave your teeth and gums vulnerable to the destructive acids generated when bad bacteria feeds on sugar and other food particles in your mouth.

*Rely On Fluoride To Strengthen Your Teeth*

Fluoride is a naturally-occurring compound that’s added to toothpaste, mouthwashes, and water supplies to prevent tooth decay, which is why it’s so valuable to preserving your oral health.

We offer fluoride treatments as part of your routine dental checkups so your teeth are protected against bacteria, shielding your enamel against harmful acids. You can also take advantage of dental sealants to give your teeth an added layer of protection against cavities and other issues.

*Visit Us Regularly In 2019*

Even if you already brush and floss your teeth every day, following all the ADA best practice recommendations, your mouth needs more than that.

You need to have the support of a highly-qualified, experienced dentist who has all the latest technology to prevent, detect, and treat the threats to your oral health.

When you visit us at least twice a year for routine dental cleanings and exams, you’re at an advantage thanks to our skilled team and state-of-the-art tools.

We’ll screen for issues like tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer on a regular basis and provide the most advanced solutions to your dental problems as they arise for a lifetime of healthy smiling!

Get A Head Start!

You don’t have to spend another holiday season hiding embarrassing teeth flaws or painful dental problems. Our team is honored to help you take back control of your oral health with routine cleanings and exams and expert restorative and cosmetic dental treatments for a lifetime.

Make a healthier mouth and a more beautiful smile one of your New Year’s resolutions.
