Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? Now that it’s January, many people are setting new goals and healthy habits to improve themselves. Unfortunately, many of these resolutions are short-lived and don’t have a lasting impact. This year, instead of spending hours on the treadmill or reorganizing your entire life, start your journey towards a better you with a visit to your Memorial dentist! Find out how kicking off the New Year with a dental checkup can improve your smile, your confidence, and your health all year long.
Look and Feel Your Best All Year with a Dental Cleaning
Even if you brush your teeth every day, you’ll need a little extra help if you really want to keep those pearly whites shining bright. When you get a professional cleaning at your dental checkup, your dentist can clean away tough, yellowish tartar and polish off any light surface stains on your teeth. When you walk out of your appointment, your teeth will look and feel better!
You’re not the only one who will enjoy your professionally cleaned smile either! Many people say that a person’s smile is their most memorable feature when making a first impression. Furthermore, studies show across the board that a beautiful smile can make you look younger, healthier, and more trustworthy. With a quick cleaning from your dentist every six months, you can greet 2020 with a confident smile all year long!
Stop Problems Before They Start with a Dental Examination
Just because your teeth look and feel fine doesn’t mean that you should skip your dental checkup. A regular dental examination gives your dentist the chance to catch issues that you can’t see or feel yet, like:
- Tooth decay. By the time you feel a cavity, your enamel has been breached and the more sensitive parts of your teeth are exposed. However, if you see your dentist regularly, they can catch weak points in the enamel and treat them before they cause you any discomfort.
- Gum disease. The first symptoms of this common condition are swollen gums that bleed easily. Although these signs may be easily overlooked, gum disease that’s left to progress is the leading cause of tooth loss in America. Thankfully, your dentist can help you completely reverse it when it’s caught early enough.
- Overall health issues. Sometimes the earliest symptoms of health conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease present themselves in the mouth. By seeing your dentist every six months, these conditions can be detected and treated as early as possible.
So start the New Year off right with a trip to your dentist. Regular dental checkups are a great, easy way to look and feel your best all year long!
