As each New Year approaches, individuals from all walks of life take stock of their life, and ask themselves in which ways they could improve it. Health is often at the top of the list, and for good reason.

Being in good health means having more energy and mobility to enjoy life as a whole. Without it (good health), life can become quite difficult …whether that pertains to your mental health, physical health, or oral health.

Oral Health Habits Worth “Resolving”

At DentistsRUs we have a few suggestions to help you aspire to better oral health, and help you maintain your resolutions in a doable manner…

Keep It Simple

Sometimes our resolutions don’t last because they become far too complicated and out of our scope of regular routine. So keep your oral routine simple with brushing 2-3 times daily and flossing once daily. But consider adding in an electric toothbrush to further aid in these efforts, and a floss pick that you can utilize on the way to work in the car. These simple additions might just have you smiling a healthier smile for 2016!

Make An Appointment

Making a dental checkup appointment is often the toughest first step, as busy schedules and the overall resistance to do so are hectic and strong. But by simply calling one of our conveniently located dental professionals located in close proximity to your home or place of work around the Metro Vancouver area, it will all but force you to address the subject you have been trying to avoid, allowing you to check off another item on your resolution list!

Quit Smoking

A top priority for many, and a top priority for anyone’s oral health. Smoking causes so many health concerns, and your oral health is no exception. Quitting will save you money, time and most importantly – your health!

Get Your Healthy Diet On

Eating a healthy diet will help with your weight management, your physical health and energy levels, your mental health, AND your oral health. A healthy diet provides the full spectrum of benefits for most any resolution list …so take stock of what’s in your refrigerator and cupboards, and consider revamping it with healthy alternatives.

At DentistsRUs, we look forward to each new year with the anticipation that it is going to be a great one. 2016 is gearing up to be exactly that, and we look forward to helping you maintain and/or regain your smile this coming year!
