Every December we start to make New Year’s resolutions and a lot of the times those resolutions revolve around improving our overall health. So why not this time make a new year’s resolution that improves your oral and dental health. You will be surprised to see how much it can improve your general health and well-being. Here are some tips from dentists at Sandgate Bayside Dental.
Develop some good habits
Do you brush your teeth well at least twice a day, for at least two minutes each time? Do you floss between your teeth every time you brush your teeth? Do you visit your dentist for a check-up and a scale and clean every 6 months. Not following this regime can leave harmful bacteria sitting around your teeth causing serious damage to your teeth and your smile. This could have a lasting impact on your teeth and your confidence. So make sure you get into the good habits of maintaining your oral and dental health in 2020.
Have a healthy diet
How much sugar do you have every day? As they say nowadays, sugar is the new tobacco! Sugar is the real culprit in causing several of those lifestyle diseases and poor dental health is no exception. Cut down on the amount and frequency of sugars that you have in your diet every day and replace it with some fibre/ protein.
Visit a great dentist who could look after your whole family
Finding the right dentist who could look after your whole family for years to come could be a difficult task. Often you will come across some dentists who work with corporate dental practices and change their workplace quite often. This leaves you a task to look for another dentist and re-build that trust with them. Sandgate Bayside Dental is not a corporate dental practice. The practice has been operating since 1980’s. Dr Vik and Dr Rob commit to continue the high standards of patient care in the practice for years to come. If you want to stay with a dental practice for life, look for a dentist with plenty of experience treating people of all ages like the team at Sandgate Bayside Dental.
