Oral Healthcare Resolutions for the New Year

December 20, 2019

Oral Healthcare Resolutions for the New YearThe 2010’s are drawing to a close, and with New Year’s Day just around the corner, we know people everywhere are drawing up lists of New Year’s resolutions to start the new decade on the right foot. For many, health is a top concern among New Year’s resolutions, but there’s one element that often gets left behind: oral health. At Utah Orthodontic Care, our mission is to make it easy and affordable to people throughout greater Salt Lake City to achieve a new smile through orthodontic treatment, so if you’re drafting your New Year’s resolution list, here are a few resolutions to help you achieve a better smile in the 2020s.

New Year’s Resolutions for Your Smile

No matter what your goals in life, a great smile offers a boost in every situation. So don’t forget about your smile while making your New Year’s resolutions! As we reach the end of the second decade of the 21st century, here are a few great New Year’s resolutions to help you improve your smile in the coming year:

  • Start Using Mouthwash: You know that brushing and flossing are important for the health of your smile. But if you want to send your oral hygiene regimen into overdrive, using a fluoridated antiseptic mouthwash is a great way to do it. Mouthwash isn’t a replacement for brushing or flossing, but adding it to your routine will help keep your teeth strong and prevent the buildup of food, bacteria, and plaque.
  • Schedule Your Dental Appointments: Visiting your dentist for a teeth cleaning and dental exam twice a year is vital to a healthy smile, so start the year off right by scheduling your two 2020 appointments now. That way, it’ll be much easier to make sure you follow through on both this year!
  • Start Orthodontic Treatment: If you really want to go for gold, why not give yourself the gift of a brand new smile for the 2020s? Orthodontic treatment is easier and more convenient than ever, and thanks to our network of high-quality orthodontic providers, we make it a breeze to achieve a new smile.
