Each new year brings forth an opportunity for us to set new resolutions. Setting new year resolutions can be a great way to adopt habits that are healthier for us and that make us feel better. Here is a simple new year resolution that you can practice again and again, every day – brushing your teeth! Consistent brushing and flossing are crucial to properly caring for your oral health, as lack of doing so can cause harmful effects to your smile. It is recommended that you brush at least twice a day for two minutes each time; especially if you wear braces. Then, follow-up by flossing between all your teeth, top and bottom. For your convenience, we have aftercare techniques and tips posted on our website that you can reference anytime, here. Celebrate the new year with a new smile!
