28 Dec 5 Worthwhile Dental Goals For 2018
Get your oral health on track….
The New Year is upon us, so now is the time to shed the old rubbish habits of 2017 and move on to a bigger, better year ahead.
Here at your Egham dentist we aren’t about to start advising you on gym routines and new careers, but we can certainly encourage you to look into some new dental goals in this year to come. After all, your smile is so important, helping you express yourself, talk, and look lovely, it is worth putting the effort in to make it as healthy and happy as possible.
Here are your Egham dentists top 5 amazing dental goals for 2018:
1. Quit Smoking
It is one of the hardest things to do but your entire health will benefit from it. Oral health is affected so badly by it, as it causes oral cancer, increases your risk of gum disease, makes your breath smell, decreases your ability to taste, and has a negative effect on how your teeth look. Check out the NHS quit smoking services for more information on quitting.
2. Brush Twice A Day For Two Minutes
It might sound simple but there are still lots of people who don’t keep basic oral hygiene habits going. Brushing for twice a day for two minutes is the most basic care you can give your teeth, and it really does count.
3. Look Into Cosmetic Dentistry
If you’re happy with your smile, then this isn’t a goal for you. But if you have missing, crooked, chipped or stained teeth or you just feel unhappy with your smile, cosmetic dentistry could be a great option for you. Don’t put it off any longer and make 2018 the year you get your dream smile.
4. Eat More Fruits & Vegetables
Statistics from Cancer Research UK shows that 55% of oral cancer cases are linked to an insufficient intake of fruit and vegetables. So now is the time to introduce more beautiful fresh product to your diet. Read about introducing more fruit and vegetables to your diet on the NHS LiveWell website.
5. Address Lost Teeth
Lost teeth are problematic for the mouth. Issues can form in the socket, and eventually the surrounding teeth can collapse and move. The lack of a tooth, or teeth may also cause issues with speech, eating and also affect the aesthetics of the face. If you have lost teeth, dental implants are a fantastic permanent solution.
At your Egham dentist we are lucky enough to have our very own dental implant surgeon Dr Raj Joshi who will assess you for dental implants. Not everyone is suitable, but if you are they are a fantastic solution to tooth loss.
