Resolve in 2020 to Take Better Care of Your Smile!

better oral care 2020

Better oral care in 2020 may seem like a small goal, but it can pay big rewards. The new year is a great time for new starts and new beginnings. Use its momentum to propel yourself towards better oral wellness and oral care habits. Book a general dentistry appointment early to take care of any dental services you need and to develop a year-long plan of prevention and dental treatment to keep your smile bright all year long. 

Narrowing Down an Oral Care Area to Focus on 

To help you determine what area you need to improve on with your oral care, book an oral care consultation with Dr. Robert Berry. He can help you determine which oral care treatments will best help you achieve a healthier, more inviting smile. Mountain Aire Dentistry provides the following treatments for dental conditions and problems like:

Tooth Decay – The Silent Destroyer

Sadly, by the time you actually start to feel tooth decay symptoms, the likelihood that the damage is irreversible is high. This is because when tooth decay (aka cavities) begin, they hit the enamel first. The enamel of your teeth doesn’t contain nerve endings so pain sensations are non-existent. 

If tooth decay is allowed to progress through the tooth enamel, it eventually hits the next layer of tooth–dentin.  Dentin invasion triggers tooth sensitivity to hot, cold, and pressure. If this level of decay is ignored, it can infect the root of the tooth causing very noticeable pain. 

Did you know, 92 percent of adults 20 to 64 have had cavities in their permanent teeth, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research reports. 

Pay Attention to Oral Care Today, Smile Tomorrow

Unlike many things in life, you don’t get a second chance when it comes to teeth. After your baby teeth fall out, you only have one set left, your adult teeth. 

A bright smile lifts everyone around you. But retaining that brilliant smile takes effort. Investing in your smile will save you in oral health and overall health costs in the future.

“Oral health is related to well-being and quality of life as measured along functional, psychosocial, and economic dimensions. Diet, nutrition, sleep, psychological status, social interaction, school, and work are affected by impaired oral and craniofacial health,” the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research said. 

Get Involved in Your Family’s Oral Care Regimen

As part of your 2020 kickstart to better oral care, assess your family’s current oral care regimen. It’s time to invest in the health of your smiles and in some essential self care. Understand the repercussions and implications of a lax approach to oral hygiene and oral health. Oral health affects overall career success and relationships. 

Start Small, Get Big Results

Fact: More than 8 in 10 people believe they have a healthy mouth, yet nearly all people in America suffer from some form of oral disease – most of which can be prevented through proper oral hygiene. When it comes to improving your oral care, a small step can make a huge difference.  Consider the following changes: 

  • Get a new toothbrush.
  • Start flossing everyday.
  • Use mouthwash twice daily. 

(A therapeutic mouthwash cleans virtually 100% of your mouth and leads to 5x healthier gums in 2 weeks and up to 9x healthier gums in 4 weeks.
