Christmas is only a few day away, and from all of us at Dr. Polley’s Summerlin dental office, we hope everyone has a safe, fun, and delicious holiday!
But Christmas isn’t the only major holiday coming up. The New Year will be here soon, and with it New Year’s resolutions.
Some of the most common have to do with eating right and exercising more. These are great, but why not add your smile to the mix? As more and more studies are showing, your oral health can have a tremendous impact on your overall health.
So what does a smile-related resolution look like?
First, resolve to visit Dr. Polley’s Summerlin office every six months for cleanings and an oral exam. Cleanings give us chance to get rid of the bacteria and plaque that have built up between your teeth and gums, preventing problems like tooth decay and gum disease and, in the process, keeping your smile strong.
Second, resolve to brush and floss regularly. We recommend brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once, and rinsing with a trusted mouthwash brand at least once.
