January isn’t here yet. Don’t worry, we don’t want to rush you through the holidays, when you’re having fun, feeling cozy, and aren’t really feeling too intent on focusing on your oral health! However, we’d like to offer up an easy way to approach your resolutions for your smile when the time does arrive (and of course, we extend our wishes for a very Happy New Year!).
Make Home Care Resolutions
First, start with the basics of your oral health, the building blocks upon which all else rests: Your home care! Resolve to do better. Not sure what you need to improve? Spend a little time asking yourself about the details. Go through your daily experience with brushing and flossing. Check out your dental hygiene products. If you’re not doing your best in any area (or if you’d like us to help), this is where to place your focus.
Make Visit Resolutions
Now, this is an area that many patients mention. Perhaps you’re great with your intentions but you don’t actually pick up the phone, call us to schedule your visit, and then feel confident about your oral health. Simply resolve to do it. Follow through with setting up the times and dates for appointments that will protect your smile.
Make Treatment Resolutions
Now, for the oral health resolutions that make a serious impact: Resolve to come in for treatments that you need. Remember, if you need explanations, you feel a little anxious and would like to talk it over, etc., we are here to help!
