As the autumn months start to draw in we start to reflect on how the previous year has gone and what resolutions we’ll make for the new one. However, there’s still time for you to make significant changes before the year is out. This is particularly true when it comes to your dental health.
Take a look at our three month plan for a smile transformation and surprise yourself in time for the New Year.
Kick the habit with Stoptober
Stoptober is the NHS initiative that challenges smokers to give up for 28 days during October. This obviously produces amazing results for your overall health, but it’s also great for your teeth.
From the aesthetics of discoloured teeth to the serious health risk of developing oral cancer, smoking only means bad things for you and your smile. Stoptober is the perfect chance for smokers to challenge themselves to kick the habit and make it last. If you haven’t signed up yet, do it today!
Don’t be tricked by autumn treats
November brings with it some really tasty, wintery treats. We’re particular fans of a Bonfire Night toffee apple. Now, while apples are brilliant autumn foods for your teeth, that thick layer of sugary, solid toffee is not!
We understand that keeping sugar consumption under control during the winter months is tough. But there are some autumn foods that are great for your smile. Pumpkin is packed full of vitamin A which helps keep your teeth and bones in top shape, while any vegetable high in water (think carrots or celery) are great at neutralising the acid forming sugar that coats your teeth.
Keep your smile stunning over the festive season
We’ve written before about the usual suspects that crop up during the festive season that cause dental woes – mulled wine, sugary seasonal favourites – but it’s worth repeating. Keeping an eye on sugar loaded, staining snacks and drinks during Christmas time will keep your teeth in great shape for the coming new year.
So, you can really spend the last three months of the year doing great things for your dental health. As you move into 2016, why not do something truly transformative? We’re back with our seventh annual £1,000 off Invisalign and Six Month Smiles offer, giving you the chance to invest in your smile in a way that you’ve never been able to before.
It’s a one day only offer, falling on Thursday 28th January 2016 and places are limited. Make sure you secure your spot today and book your free consultation with us online. In the meantime, if you have any further questions simply get in touch with the team. We can’t wait to see you there!
