New Year, New Smile

New Year's is just around the corner, and that means people everywhere are getting ready to draft intentions and resolutions to make 2019 their best year yet. But as you start thinking about a healthier diet and restarting that gym membership, there's one thing that may be missing from both your and your child's New Year's resolution list: your smile. At Alderwood Children's Dentistry, we're proud to help kids throughout Lynnwood achieve better dental health. Here's why the new year is the perfect time to get kids excited about refreshing their smile!

Resolve to Take Care of Your Child's Teeth

The new year is a time of reflection and renewal, and it's also the perfect time to renew your focus on dental health. Oral hygiene and comprehensive dental treatment are the foundations of a healthy smile, and if you haven't made it already, committing to better dental health in 2019 is the perfect New Year's resolution. Here are a few simple things you and your kids can resolve to do for a better smile in 2019:

  • Fortify Your Oral Hygiene: Nothing is more important for your smile than brushing and flossing, so resolving to brush twice a day and floss once a day, every day, is a great way to improve your smile in the new year.
  • Schedule Your Checkups: Take action for your dental health and schedule your recommended two dental checkups ahead of time.
  • Dental Health Diet: The foods we eat impact the health of our teeth, so this year, resolve to eat a diet rich in vegetables and low-fat dairy while minimizing sugars, carbs, and acidic foods and drinks.
  • Get a Brand New Smile: Nearly everyone can benefit from orthodontic treatment. If your children are turning 7 this year, schedule their initial orthodontic checkup and consider scheduling a consultation for yourself as well.
