Simple oral health resolutions for the whole family
Can you believe it, another year and another decade! The team at Teeth N Smiles hope that you and your loved ones had a fantastic Christmas and a brought in the new year in style.
Now we know that sticking to New Years Resolutions can be a challenge which is why we have come up some super simple oral health resolutions that are easy for the entire family to follow for 2020 and beyond.
1. Replace toothbrushes
Treat yourself and your family members to a new toothbrush so you can clean your teeth more thoroughly. The Australian Dental Association (ADA) advises to replace your toothbrush every three months, so basically every season or before if you are ill.
2. Don’t skip flossing
Floss daily and your gums will love and reward you by staying strong and healthy. Flossing is perhaps even more important than brushing because it removes bacteria that are the precursors of plaque, which if left to fester will turn into tartar that cannot be removed by regular brushing or flossing.

3. Limit in-between snacking
Snacking in between meals can increase the rate of tooth decay by increasing acid production.
4. See your dentist regularly
Most people need to see a dentist twice yearly to maintain good oral health and prevent problems, but people with existing dental or medical issues might benefit from additional visits. It is important to schedule these visits in and for the kiddies, Teeth N Smiles mobile dental services offers an ideal solution for busy families who don’t have time to get to the dentist but recognise the need for quality dental care.
