Did you think to keep your smile healthy as a new year resolution this year? If not, you are not alone. Thousands of people let their oral health go unchecked, resulting in dangerous and disastrous problems later in the year. That is why our team is happy to help you avoid these dangerous situations by giving you tips on how to keep your smile healthy and bright in the new year.

Here at DeMercy Dental in Roswell, Georgia, we care about your oral health and smile. That is why we have put this list of information together, so you can make positive oral health care habits and keep your teeth clean and fresh all year long. This list includes:

1. Brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes a day. By keeping your teeth brushed and clean, you can prevent bacteria, plaque, and tartar from building up and giving you serious oral health problems.
2. Floss your teeth at least once a day. Food particles, plaque, bacteria, and even tartar can build in the hard-to-reach places of your smile between your teeth and along the gumline. That is why it is vital to use floss to remove these elements.
3. Use an effective mouthwash. Mouthwash plays an important role in ridding your mouth of bacteria your toothbrush and floss cannot reach.
4. Visit your dentist, Dr. Jeff DeMercy and Amanda Kossick at least twice a year. If you keep up with your dental checkups, there is a better chance of stopping a serious problem early before serious risks can apply. Our professional staff can help you reverse any oral health care issue and treat any conditions you may have.
