Start the New Year with a Healthy Mouth

January is the perfect time for a fresh start on your dental health. This month, be sure to schedule annual dental exams, cleanings and x-rays for you and your family members.

Along with regular dental appointments, you can also refresh your dental care with these easy tips:

  • Trash any expired toothpaste, mouthwash or floss, and be sure to trade in your old toothbrush for a new one if the bristles are frayed.
  • Tired of using the same toothbrush every day? Re-energize your routine with an electric toothbrush.
  • Make flossing easier by choosing tools that work best for you, such as floss picks, dental tapes and even flavored floss.
  • Switch up your toothpaste. Make your smile sparkle with non-abrasive, non-bleaching whitening ingredients, but make sure your paste also includes fluoride to help fight tooth decay.
