5 Resolutions For Healthier Teeth in 2023
2022 has come to an end, and you may be thinking about what goals you accomplished this last year or are beginning to make new ones for 2023. Why not make your oral health a priority? Dr. Nan Rosas is your premiere provider of general and cosmetic dentistry and is here to help you achieve your 2023 goals of having healthier teeth.
Rosas Family Dental proudly serves the Clear Lake, League City, Webster, Seabrook, Friendswood, Kemah, and NASA areas. Here are just a few ways you can improve your dental health for the new year.
Schedule Your Preventative Care Appointment
Preventative care appointments are recommended at least every six months and include a professional dental cleaning, necessary radiographs, and a dental examination. The reason it is called a preventative care appointment is that it is our goal to help you prevent future dental decay or periodontal disease. By maintaining frequent visits, we can address issues before they become bigger problems for you down the road. If you haven’t scheduled your next preventative care visit, contact Rosas Family Dental today!
Upgrade to an Electric Toothbrush
While brushing two times a day for two minutes each time is recommended, have you considered upgrading to an electric toothbrush? Studies show that brushing with an electric toothbrush is much more effective than using a manual toothbrush alone. They help prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease. Because of the specific movement of electric toothbrushes, they are able to better clean areas of the teeth that manual toothbrushes do not.
The most common types of electric toothbrushes have either an oscillating head or one that moves using sonic vibrations. Electric toothbrushes have a larger handle, making it easier to hold onto, and they are made with soft bristles that are gentle to the gum tissue. Most have a two-minute timer to ensure you are brushing the recommended two minutes each time you use them.
Electric toothbrushes are great tools that will improve your dental health in 2023. Quality electric toothbrushes can make a world of difference, especially if you have a history of gingivitis or gum disease.
Schedule Any Unfinished Treatment
At Rosas Family Dental of Clear Lake, we understand that completing all of your dental treatment in one year may be difficult. In those cases, your optimum dental health is a long term but achievable goal.
When dentistry needs to be broken up in to several appointments spanning over a longer period of time, spreading those appointments up over multiple calendar years can be beneficial to you.
Prioritizing your treatment and maximizing your dental benefits each year can lessen your out-of-pocket expenses. You can also plan ahead by adding to your health savings account or looking into affordable 0% interest financing options. Entering the new year with a solid plan to finish incomplete treatment will allow you to make strides toward your dental health goal.
Straight Teeth Are Healthier Teeth
Straightening your teeth is easier than ever before with the use of Invisalign clear aligner therapy. Misaligned teeth are more difficult to keep clean and put you at a higher risk for dental decay and periodontal disease, not to mention TMJ disorder and bruxism.
Improve your oral health by straightening your teeth with Rosas Family Dental. Your custom-designed clear aligner trays will put gentle force on your teeth to comfortably move them into the desired position. Because your trays are removable, eating and brushing is easy. By changing trays every two weeks, you can expect to see results quickly, with final results in as little as 6-12 months!
