It may not be January 1st but it’s still early into the year, which means that there’s still plenty of time to make sure we’re practicing healthy habits that will carry us through 2020. You may already be focused on improving the health of your body with nutritious eating and adequate exercise. We’d also like to encourage you to set the same kind of focus and attitude towards your oral health. Hey, we are dental professionals after all! Here are some ways to set a good oral health baseline for 2020:

Practice Preventive Dental Care

It’s far better to avoid a dental issue in the first place than to get one and have to fix it. That’s what preventive dental care is all about. With the right habits, you can save yourself from a whole lot of trouble down the road. For example, remember to brush twice a day and floss at least once a day. That simple routine can have a major impact on preventing gum disease and cavities.

Another important point when it comes to preventive care is not skipping out on your regular dental visits. You should be visiting a dentist’s office twice a year for regular cleanings. These visits also serve as preventive care because they help us keep an eye on any issues that may be developing and stop them in their tracks.

Get Dental Treatment You Need, When You Need It

All of that sounds great, but what if you have a dental issue on your hand right now? The best thing you can do is get it handled as soon as possible by seeing a dental professional. Otherwise, it can get worse, which may mean more stress, money, and possibly even pain for you in the future. For 2020, make a commitment to yourself to take care of any dental health concerns you might’ve had for a while now so you can move forward with a clean slate and healthy smile.
