New year’s dental resolutions

January 3, 2018 by Fairlight Dental

It’s a brand new year and people up and down the country are busy trying to keep to their new year’s resolutions.

If you’re yet to make your resolutions, or if you’re looking for some new ones, why not think about improving your dental health? Making simple changes to your dental routine in 2018 could set you up for a life time of healthier teeth. We’ve made some suggestions to help get you started!

Visit your dentist at least twice a year

Regular visits to your dentist should be an essential part of your dental health routine, and yet nearly 40% of UK adults admit to not visiting the dentist at least twice a year. Dentists can advise on how to improve your dental health, and recognise potentially dangerous signs early and together with our team of hygienists we can help keep your teeth sparkly clean but more importantly keep your gums healthy, preventing periodontal disease which is the leading cause of tooth loss in the UK.

Get an Electric Toothbrush

Electric toothbrushes remove more plaque, simply stated, rechargeable electric toothbrushes (or “power” toothbrushes) provide superior plaque removal to regular manual toothbrushes. And because they provide the brushing action for you, many people find using power toothbrushes easier than using regular manual ones. Additionally, with so many different types and features available, it’s easy to find one that suits your specific oral health needs.

Commit to flossing

Flossing should be an essential part of your dental routine. Yet according to the British Dental Health association, only 21% of adults in the UK floss regularly and one in three have never flossed in their life. Simply brushing your teeth means that 40% of the tooth surface area can be missed in the cleaning process. This increases the risk of cavities, tooth decay and tooth loss.

Quit smoking

Quitting smoking may already be on your list of resolutions, but did you know that it could yield serious health benefits for your mouth as well? Smoking is one of the leading causes of mouth cancer and gum disease in the UK. Studies have shown that smoking is a contributing factor to gum disease in 75% of cases, and that smokers are likely to lose twice as many teeth as non-smokers.

Cut down on sugar

The bacteria that form together to become plaque use sugar as a form of energy making them multiply faster growing in size and thickness. Some of these bacteria cause tooth decay and gum disease, so cutting down on sugar will help improve your dental health, giving you stronger, healthier teeth for longer.

These are just a few ways in which you can improve your oral health and have a healthier, happier mouth for 2018. Why not take advantage of our January offer and start the year as you mean to go on with an initial consultation, extensive dental health check and a hygienist visit, all for £79.
