Jump-Start the New Year with a Dental Cleaning and Exam

New Year dental cleaning

San Francisco and Marin CA

The new year’s arrival could mean a fresh start for many things in your life. You can improve your overall health and wellness from a new exercise program to breaking bad habits. However, did you know that your oral health has a direct impact on your overall health? Harmful bacteria that accumulate in your mouth not only attack your teeth and gums but could also cause additional health concerns such as heart disease, stroke, or diabetes. Therefore, our Bay Area family dentists at Glen Park Dental share on the blog today why you should jump-start the new year with a dental cleaning and exam so that you can boost your oral health after a few months of holiday goodies.

The Holidays

Halloween candy, Thanksgiving buffets, and Christmas treats galore are common this time of year. After three months of sugary treats, holiday gatherings, and special dishes, your smile needs some recovery time. Even though you may have practiced good oral care habits throughout the holiday season, there are some areas in your mouth where your toothbrush can’t reach and requires professional tools to remove tartar buildup that leads to gum disease, tooth discoloration, and cavities. Additionally, tooth stains will no longer plague your smile, and you can leave our office with a brighter one.

Start the New Year Off Right

For many people, the new year signifies a time when things in life get a fresh start. One of those items on your list should be your oral care. When you visit our San Francisco dental office for a checkup and cleaning, not only do we remove harmful substances from your teeth and gums, but you receive an examination to make sure your oral health is in tip-top shape. Additionally, your New Year’s visit can include a discussion about other treatments that may be necessary or desired. That way, you can work with our dentists throughout the year to accomplish your overall smile goals.

Establish New Oral Care Habits

Along with the new year comes a natural desire to establish personal goals, and your oral care needs to be included. Whether you are a decent brusher and flosser or you’re inconsistent with your oral hygiene habits, establishing new oral care habits can protect your smile. Our family dentists in Marin explain that daily oral care can improve your oral health, freshen your breath, and save time and money from needing advanced treatments. So, take the time this new year to create an excellent daily oral care regimen and remember to visit our office twice a year for checkups and cleanings.
