03 Jan Make This Year’s Smile Your Best Yet
Happy New Year from Crown House Dental Practice!
Our Egham dentist is so happy to welcome in this brand, spanking New Year and we hope all our wonderful patients had a fantastic Christmas; we certainly did!
365 Brand New Days Of Smiling
At this time of year, we are more than aware many people start making New Year’s resolutions, which can be huge, like quitting smoking or changing jobs, to minor changes like drinking one less glass of wine a week, eating less chocolate or spending more time with loved ones. So we thought it might be a great idea to give you some oral health related New Year’s resolutions so you can make this year’s smile, your best yet:
This is such a lovely resolution, we just can’t see why anyone wouldn’t want to do it. The only effort involved is actually smiling, which has been proven to be physically easier than frowning (43 muscles to frown, only 17 to smile), so why wouldn’t you? Great reasons to smile more are:
● A smile comes top of our list when it comes to thing we notice when we meet someone new
● Smiles are rated our second most attractive feature
● 80% of us are more likely to talk to someone on a night out if they smile at us
● When we are looking for a new person to date, a great smile is our number 1 priority
Exercise doesn’t just benefit your muscles, heart and mind, it benefits your teeth as well! Regular exercise helps you lower your gum disease risk, because you have better blood flow to your gums and you can fight infections better. So you can start that cycling route and have even more of a reason to smile about it!
What you eat and drink can cause tooth decay issues, so a healthy diet is a really good idea for your body and for your oral health. Also, according to Cancer Research UK;
” A diet high in fruit and vegetables may protect against oral cancer – insufficient fruit and vegetables intake is linked to an estimated 56% of oral cancer cases in the UK.” There are also studies suggesting those with a high BMI are more likely to suffer from gum disease.

Get Better Teeth
Maybe you have crooked teeth, chipped teeth, stained teeth or other dental issues that make you ashamed to smile. Or perhaps you have a good smile but have always wanted that A-list grin that lights up a room. Whatever your reason for wanting better teeth, why not make 2016 the year you get better teeth? Your Egham dentist at Crown House Dental, TW20, has a wide range of modern general and cosmetic dentistry treatments that can completely transform your smile giving you the confidence you deserve.
We all know smoking is very bad for your general health, and it has a really negative effect on your oral health as well. Smoking can:
● Stain the teeth because of the tar and tobacco
● Lead to gum disease
● Cause you to have more dental plaque
● Cause you to have a higher risk of oral cancer (it is the leading cause of the disease)
Why not give yourself an incentive to quit, like getting teeth whitening when you’ve managed to stop for a month or two? Follow this link for help with quitting smoking; http://www.nhs.uk/smokefree
