Is health and wellness one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2019? Then why not start with your oral health!
Putting your oral health first comes with numerous benefits, including those within your overall health, your appearance and your wallet.
Here are some key reasons why oral health should be a top priority for 2019:
Looking after your oral health – Improves your overall health
If you didn’t know it already, the health of your mouth is closely linked to the health of your body. Not only is your mouth the pathway for harmful substances to enter your body, but there are certain oral health conditions that can become a systemic concern. For instance, untreated gum disease can contribute to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and premature birth.
Daily routine is important for your overall health and your oral health
We all get busy, but correct daily brushing and flossing is a must to include in your daily routine. Brushing twice-a-day and flossing daily keeps harmful bacteria and plaque at bay, freshens your breath, and brightens your smile — which is typically the first thing people notice about you.
Smiling has many benefits
You probably know the quote “laughter is the best medicine,” and you have probably even experienced the benefits of smiling and laughter. But did you know that the simple act of smiling can boost your mood and even your immune system?

Dental visits are critical for good health and especially your oral health
If it’s been more than six months since your last dental check-up, make it a priority in 2019. A dentist will give your teeth a good clean, and check for problems like decay and gum disease.
Protect your wallet
Upping your game when it comes to dental care may be the best thing you do this year to save money. Dental treatments, especially restorative ones, can be costly. By giving more attention to your preventive dental care plan, you can avoid procedures like root canals, crowns and dental implants that can drain or disrupt your savings. Most dental problems are avoidable with proper brushing, flossing and routine visits to your dentist.
Like so many things, prevention is a lot better than the cure. As well as brushing and flossing twice a day, get into the habit of a visiting the dentist regularly. You’ll enjoy the benefits of a healthy mouth.
