It’s the time of year for resolutions. Aim for a healthier smile in 2022! We can help you get started with the following tips.

Consider the benefits of starting a healthy routine early in the year. Try to eat a well-balanced diet and drink plenty of water. Find ways to reduce and manage stress while avoiding tobacco products and limiting alcohol. Think about setting goals to improve your oral health routine this year. Maintaining good oral health will also help improve your overall health.

Good oral health habits include:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time – don’t forget to clean your tongue
  • Flossing daily
  • Using fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled manual or electric toothbrush
  • Storing your toothbrush in an upright position and allow it to air-dry
  • Replacing your toothbrush or toothbrush head every three months

Preventive care has long been a priority in dental benefit plans. Getting the most out of your dental coverage can play a big role in helping achieve your goals for better health. Even if you aren’t having any dental pain or problems, it is still a good idea to schedule a visit with your dentist. Dentists can diagnose and treat various dental diseases early on, potentially preventing larger issues and saving money on costly procedures later on.

Keep these tips in mind for a healthy smile all year long!
