Every New Year is an opportunity to shift more into our best selves. You may not be the kind of person who loves making New Years Resolutions. We can understand why. Studies show that only about 20% of the resolutions that are made actually make it a full month.

One of the reasons our goals might fall to the wayside so quickly is because they’re a little too lofty to be sustainable. Here, we discuss how to break up the goal of improving oral health to make it easily attainable.

Build Confidence With Cosmetic Dentistry

Our smiles can propel us or hinder us in the area of confidence. According to research, the vast majority of people hide their full, authentic smiles because they don’t feel good about the appearance of their teeth. If you tend to smile with closed lips or with a hand over your mouth, consider why. If it is a cosmetic issue, then schedule a visit with your dentist to address it. You deserve a smile that you want to share with the world. When you do, everyone benefits. Simple ways that Aventura Dental Center can help include:

  • Dental bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Teeth whitening
  • Invisalign

Clean Up Dental Problems With Restorative Dentistry

The habits that we keep daily affect every aspect of our health. When it comes to oral health, the most impactful habits are brushing and flossing. Most people are pretty good about brushing their teeth before they rush off for their day. However, brushing again before bed may be overlooked as the necessity that it is. Before bed, we should brush just as we do in the morning, for two full minutes. Then, we need to floss. The practice doesn’t take very long, less than 5 minutes total, and it makes an enormous difference in the prevalence of cavities and gum disease. To get help with issues like these, schedule a visit with us. Restorative dentistry can repair dental damage caused by cavities and infection, as well as fractures or chips caused by habits like biting on hard objects or grinding teeth.

Maintain A Healthy Smile With Preventive Dentistry

The very best time to see the dentist is before a problem occurs. Preventive dentistry generally involves a thorough, painless check-up during which the dentists examines all teeth, fillings, crowns, and other restorations, and the margins where the gums meet teeth. Every so often, these visits will involve x-rays to observe areas that aren’t visible to the naked eye. After an examination, we perform a professional cleaning to remove built-up plaque and tartar, as needed to prevent inflammation and decrease the risk of infection.
