A New Year is not only a fresh start, but a great time to make positive changes in our lives. One of the most common new year resolutions is to have a healthier, everyday lifestyle. Whether it’s eating better, being more physically active, or getting your wellness in order – looking out for your overall health is important. This is especially true when it comes to your oral health.
Your oral health is directly tied to your overall health and your smile is a reflection of good oral health. There are several dental procedures that can help you gain a fresh smile in the new year.
Routine Dental Check-ups
Twice a year (every six months) dental appointments are essential to your oral health. These routine visits not only prevent oral disease but allow for early detection of any problems that would otherwise include more extensive (and expensive) treatments to fix. Staying up to date on your semi-annual dental visits will keep you on track with any treatments you may need and save you money in the long run.
If you’re missing teeth, dental implants are great way to fill the gaps and get that fresh smile you’ve been looking for. Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed in your jawbone and bond with your natural bone. They are the strongest devices available to support new teeth. In addition, they allow new teeth to look, feel, and function naturally – giving you the confidence to smile again!
A root canal is often thought of as a painful procedure, but it’s actually relatively painless and extremely effective. This procedure is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal and save the natural tooth. A root canal is very similar to a routine filling and can usually be completed in one or two appointments. Therefore, you’ll be back to smiling, biting, and chewing in no time.
Orthodontic treatments are for everyone and work to correct teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Modern braces come in a variety forms – traditional metal, clear, and Invisalign®. Each form helps to straighten teeth which prevents additional health problems and boosts self-confidence. When teeth are properly aligned it’s easier to practice good oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing. In addition, orthodontic treatment will help give you the freedom to smile without holding back!
