1 - Pledging to Floss More
Floss! Floss! Floss! Of course the best advice is to start flossing if you don’t already. Flossing not only keeps your teeth and gums healthy, it also contributes the health of your overall health such as diabetes and heart disease. Let's all pledge to floss more in 2019.
2. Change your Toothbrush
Changing your toothbrush is an easy step to create a healthy habit in 2019. The American Dental Association, says we should change out our toothbrush every 3-4 months. By simply doing this, we can eliminate possible viruses that can get us sick, keep our teeth clean and a reminder to brush twice a day for 2 minutes.
3. Utilize Mouthwash
Utilizing mouthwash can be beneficial beyond avoiding stinky breath. Depending on various mouthwashes, some are useful for destroying bacteria that can prevent cavities.
