When the gifts are given, the food has been feasted upon and all the fizz has been drunk, we turn our attention to the New Year. And one thing we love to do is make New Year’s resolutions! It helps us to focus on our goals for the coming year and motivates us to build on the achievements of the previous year.

If one of your resolutions is to renew your smiles then read on to find some of our top tips to creating that perfect New Year smile.

Kick the habit

We won’t budge on this one; if you want a stunning, healthy smile then smoking absolutely has to go! Smoking increases your risk of, cavities, gum disease and recession, discoloured teeth and throat, lung and oral cancer. Smokers are twice as likely to lose their teeth too! There are simply too many risks associated with smoking to carry on.

Snack smart

Proper nourishment is just as important for your dental health as it is for the health of the rest of your body. The vitamins and minerals that are abundant in fresh fruit and vegetables help your body to fight infections and inflammation, one of the biggest causes of gum disease. And raw veggies are brilliant at naturally cleaning your teeth and keeping your breath fresh.

Commit to your routine

You probably hear it time and again; brush and floss twice a day! You hear it so much because it’s vitally important. It’s the best thing you can do for your dental health! You’re regularly removing dangerous plaque, therefore protecting your teeth from cavities and saving your gums from recession. And never forget flossing – it’s the only real way to remove plaque from between the teeth, where decay really begins.
