Still working on your resolution list for this year? Make sure you aren't forgetting to include proper oral care. It might not be the most glamorous resolution, but it's one that will serve you far beyond the next 365 days.
Dedicating yourself to healthy teeth and gums means more than just a mouthful bright, pearly whites. It means that you've made an investment in your overall health and wellness for the New Year.
In fact, did you know that practicing proper oral hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing and scheduling regular dental checkups, also means that you're reducing your risk for chronic illnesses such as heart disease, dementia, and even diabetes? It's true. Research has shown that the bacteria and resulting inflammation that begins in an unclean mouth ups your chances for these serious diseases.
Kick off 2016 by scheduling your first dental appointment of the year with Hudson Oaks Family Dentistry. We're happy to welcome new patients, and offer services ranging from general dental care, to the in-office treatment of dental emergencies.
Here's to 2016 and your healthiest smile yet.
