A New Year, a New You

With the start of the New Year, you’ve probably made a few resolutions. Many people’s resolutions center on having a healthier lifestyle; they resolve to lose weight, start exercising, quit smoking, etc. One resolution that we think you should consider is achieving a beautiful and healthy smile. It’s a brand new year, which means your dental insurance benefits have likely renewed. When was the last time you had a cleaning? If it hasn’t been in the past six months, then now is the perfect time.

You might be thinking “my teeth feel fine, why should I go to the dentist now?” Dental problems can be fixed much more easily when caught early on. Taking a preventative approach can save you from discomfort down the road, and also save you money in the long run. With regular checkups and cleanings at our Tempe office, we are able to spot early signs of tooth decay. Routine cleanings can also help prevent conditions that could be costly to correct.

Did you know that your dental health is a critical part of your overall wellness? Studies have shown that having poor oral health can affect the rest of your body. Periodontal disease has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, and other serious health conditions. Luckily, with proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits, much of this is preventable.

As you consider the resolutions you have made this year, make improved oral health a personal and family goal this year. There is no time like the present to have the beautiful health smile you have always wanted.
