January 4, 2019

It’s 2019 and everyone is pretty excited about the new year. An active and healthy life will help you to accomplish your goals. It is the perfect time to note down how you can improve your dental and overall health. So now grab your bullet journal and make a list of things you will do to make your teeth healthier!

Why is it important?

We are unaware of a number of dental diseases. However, if we ignore the minor conditions of our teeth we may face severe complications. Hence instead of paying for expensive treatments to your dentists, make little changes in your life on a daily basis, and your teeth will thank you.

Conditions such as oral cancers are treatable if detected early. The Oral Cancer foundation quotes that dental checkups are one of the best lines of defense.

A list of resolutions that you must make for your healthy teeth

Quit Tobacco

Stop smoking or chewing tobacco. We know that it is very difficult at first, but you will certainly be proud after you completely discontinue it. Consult your dentist or physician if you are willing to make this change for your better health.

Regular visits to your dentist

Get rid of plaque deposits and painful tooth decay as soon as possible. Schedule an appointment with your dentist regularly. Your dentist will not only treat your teeth issues but also guide to enhance your smile. This is a great start towards caring about your pearly whites.

Consume teeth friendly foods

Sugars are great for your tongue but not your teeth. Therefore you must limit eating sugary snacks and sodas. Also, reduce binging on salty and crunchy snacks. Start eating fiber-rich foods such as carrots, cucumbers, and broccoli. Stay hydrated as it washes away the toxins in your teeth.

Don’t forget your teeth cleaning routine

Brushing twice a day and flossing once will keep you away from number of dental issues. It is necessary to care for your teeth all the time by carrying out a simple routine.

Tips you can follow to maintain your oral health

  1. Fine jar: This technique really works! Make a glass jar. This jar will help you stay away from tobacco addiction. We all feel bad whenever we have to pay fine. Therefore, every time you go off the wagon while following your ‘No Smoking resolution,’ put some amount like Rs.100 in the jar. And at the end of the year, you will realize how much you have been going off-track. You can charity the collected cash in the jar.
  2. Set reminders for the dentist appointments on your phone. Also, you can make a chart of appointments in your bullet journal, or write a note on your fridge board to schedule your dentist’s appointments.
  3. Make a chart on your vision board which will create a log for maintaining oral hygiene on a daily basis.
