Drink More Water
We all know that we should drink plenty of water yet it can be a hard habit to keep up with. If you are a person that has trouble keeping hydrated, we have some tips to help you do so. Get a reusable water bottle to drink from throughout your day. Some bottles have little markings on them to keep you on track. If you prefer soda and cola, try drinking water infused with flavors or sugar-free carbonated water. Drinking on water helps to keep your smile rinsed of harmful bacteria.
Be Ahead of Your Needs
Procrastination is a bad habit that a new year can inspire you to break. When it comes to your smile, you can prevent problems. Preemptively straightening your smile with orthodontic treatment can help you to prevent bigger problems down the line. A misaligned smile is at a higher risk for damage, tooth decay, gum disease, and jaw disorders. Straightening it can lower these risks.
Your daily routine is the biggest, most important part of keeping your smile healthy. Every day you should be brushing your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes a session. Other hygiene habits like flossing, scraping your tongue, and using alcohol-free mouthwash should be added to keep your smile as clean as possible.
