As your trusted North Texas dentist, HomeTown Dental sets out to not only tend to our patients’ dental health but also to educate them on how to achieve their dental health goals with as little professional intervention as possible. To that end, Hometown Dental has a list of New Year’s resolutions to help you establish a better dental health routine in 2019.
Brush Twice a Day for Two Minutes
If this is a resolution you are just now making, you might be a little behind the curve. This is the most important part of your dental health regimen. While many certainly use their toothbrush at least twice a day, if you aren’t brushing for at least two minutes in a soft, circular motion moving from one area to the next each time you brush, then you aren’t really putting in the amount of time needed to properly clean your teeth and gums.
Use the Proper Toothbrush
Even if you already have a solid brushing technique, your efforts could be for not if you’re using the wrong toothbrush. There are many different types of toothbrushes and picking the wrong one can lead to more harm to your dental health than good. To ensure you’re making the right choice, take a look at HomeTown Dental’s toothbrush guide.
You have certainly heard it several times, but flossing is crucial to your dental health. Even having the right toothbrush does little when trying to fight the buildup between your teeth. Those particulates can only be removed with dental floss. However, if using regular dental floss is an issue for you or a member of your family, checkout Hometown Dental’s flossing alternatives guide.
These New Year’s resolutions are so easy, your dental health will be at peak performance in no time. We hope that you stick with them and incorporate them into your dental health habits for years to come.
