Now that 2017 is here, many people are heading to local gyms to make a brand new start at becoming healthier and fitter. If you want to improve your life or health in some way, this is the time of the year to make a few New Year’s resolutions to get you inspired and motivated. The team at San Ramon Dental Arts would like to offer a few suggestions for New Year’s resolutions that can help keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
Book an Appointment with Your San Ramon Dentist
A great way to kick off 2017 is to come and visit us at San Ramon Dental Arts so we can provide you with a routine examination and professional cleaning. During your exam, we’ll look for any developing problems with your teeth and gums and clean your teeth well so you can stay on top of your dental health and enjoy that wonderful feeling of knowing your teeth are squeaky clean!
Cut Your Sugar Intake
While it’s fine to enjoy a sugary treat now and then, it’s not beneficial to your oral health (or your overall health for that matter) to consume too much sugar. If you tend to eat many sweet treats, promise yourself you’ll cut back on sugar for the sake of your teeth and overall body health. There are many healthier sweet treats you can enjoy which are better for your teeth like fresh fruits and low fat yogurt.
Kick the Habit Once and For All
Smoking or using tobacco products is a serious addiction that often takes several attempts to quit. If you use tobacco, you are putting yourself at risk for developing oral cancer, gum disease and of course, yellow and stained teeth. Even though quitting a tobacco habit can be tough, it is well worth it so make 2017 the year you go tobacco-free!
