Anchorage Dentist Shares 3 Resolutions for the Whole Family to Keep in 2017, Anchorage, Alaska

Your dental health has a direct effect on your overall health, and it’s never too early — or too late — to start practicing good oral hygiene habits. If you brush every day but can’t remember the last time you had a professional teeth cleaning, turn to Family First Dentistry in Anchorage, AK. At their practice, you will find a caring family dentist who will handle the dental needs of everyone in your family.

Family Dentist Shares 3 Resolutions To Keep This Year

1. Floss Daily

Even if you brush after every meal, there are going to be food particles and plaque that bristles just won’t be able to reach. That’s why everyone in your family should be flossing daily. If your children are too young to handle dental floss on their own, you can purchase floss picks and help them use the picks every night.

2. Schedule Two Teeth Cleanings

dentistYou should visit your dentist for an exam and professional teeth cleaning every six months, which means you should go twice during 2017. Schedule two dentist appointments six months apart for everyone in your family this year to ensure they maintain healthy, beautiful smiles into 2018 and beyond.

3. Maintain A Healthy Diet

It’s easy to forget the impact your diet can have on your oral health, especially when most people focus on losing weight at the start of every year. A balanced diet will do more than help you trim down and tone up, though. It will also keep your teeth strong and healthy.
