With the new year coming up around the corner, Dr. Morgan wants to help our patients set good goals for themselves and the future of their dental health. Here are some good new years resolutions to maintain for the sake of your smile in 2021:

“I’m going to brush and floss twice every day.”

This is a great goal to set for yourself, and you are probably already doing it without even being aware of it. However, it’s good to remind yourself of all the benefits of maintaining a consistent at-home oral health routine can bring for your smile. When you brush and floss at least twice a day, you are helping yourself avoid expensive dental care later on. Brushing and flossing are your smile’s first lines of defense when it comes to the longevity of your dental health. We would hate to see our patients neglect their dental health in the new year. For this reason, we think this is one of the best resolutions you can set for yourself. Brush and floss every day, twice a day, for a whole year. No skipping!

“I’m going to see my local dentist once every six months.”

Perhaps this too seems like an easy resolution to maintain, and maybe even is another one that you are already practicing without even knowing it. However, if you aren’t seeing your dentist regularly, now is a good time to start. By seeing your local dentist once every six months, you are ensuring that your dental health is under the supervision of professionals who can catch dental concerns in their early stages before they require more extensive and expensive restorative care. During our oral health and wellness visits with patients, we examine the overall health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. We also provide thorough dental cleanings to ensure no plaque or tartar remains on your dental structures long enough to cause damage.

“I’m going to ask about my cosmetic dentistry options.”

Many patients forget to ask about their cosmetic dentistry options even if they may be interested in them. 2021 is the perfect time to pursue cosmetic dentistry for yourself. You can address those minor blemishes that have been taking a big toll on your overall self-esteem. We want to help you achieve your dream smile with our cosmetic dentistry solutions. Our compassionate team of dental professionals is here to help you, whenever you are ready to get started on building your dream smile.

“I’m going to smile more often.”

2020 has been a particularly difficult year for us all. We hope that our patients enjoy their holiday season and remind themselves of all the things they have left to smile about. Let us do our part in helping you smile more often by providing you with your necessary dental care. Schedule an appointment with our dental office today. We look forward to seeing you in the new year.
