4 New Year's Resolutions For your Dental Health

Use mouthwash

Did you know that even after brushing, there sometimes is extra gunk that sticks around in your mouth? Using mouthwash is a perfect way to give your mouth a rinse, loosen up and repel that gunk, and freshen up!

Pro Tips:

Pick up an electric toothbrush 

The key to effective oral hygiene is effective use of the right toothbrush. When people come into my office, I can tell when they use an electric toothbrush compared to a manual brush, because their teeth are almost always cleaner!
