ATLANTA, GA, February 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- One of the best gifts you can give yourself this new year is to make a resolution to take better care of your teeth and gums. Poor dental hygiene encourages the growth of bacteria, which can lead to cavities and other problems.
The first step you should take is to call your Atlanta dentist
and make an appointment for a thorough cleaning and examination. During the examination, any signs of decay or damage that are found can be addressed. Your dentist will remove any plaque build-up, which will reduce the chances of cavities forming.
During your appointment your dentist in Atlanta, Ga., can also demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques that you can follow to keep your smile bright all year long. Neglecting your dental health not only increases the chances of decay, but also can cause other health problems.
To further promote your dental health, you should avoid sugary and acidic drinks, brush and floss, or at least rinse, after every meal and quit smoking.
"The beginning of the new year is a wonderful time to make a year-long commitment to your dental health. Speak with your dentist and he or she will offer a dental plan that will keep you smiling all year," says Ken Tralongo, CEO of Tralongo Management.
Making better dental care one of your New Year's resolutions is a great way to make your self feel and look good and has long-lasting positive effects on your overall dental health.
