Welcome to both the new year and the January newsletter. Made any resolutions for this year? It's not too late to start one to improve your dental health. First impressions are important, and improving your oral health can make yours a positive one.
As we take our first steps through the year of 2017, we should think about our dental health and what we can do to improve it in this new year. If you've made a resolution to improve your smile, then you may be looking for different ways you can look after your teeth. It's fairly common knowledge that you should be brushing twice a day, but what else can we do to have a healthier smile?
One common trap that people fall into with their dental health is that they rinse their mouth with water or a mouthwash after they brush their teeth. This washes away some of the fluoride from the toothpaste, meaning you don't get as much of a benefit. You should spit instead of rinsing, and use mouthwash at a different time of day.
Improving your dental routine isn't the only way you can improve your oral health. Things such as smoking, alcohol and your diet all have a profound effect on the healthiness of your mouth. Improving your diet, reducing your alcohol consumption and quitting smoking are all good resolutions that can improve not only your oral health, but your general health as well.
Make sure you're aware of the issues that have been linked to oral health. Serious health issues such as diabetes, heart disease and more can be potentially avoided by using a good routine for your dental health. If you ever think about not brushing your teeth, consider the issues that you could encounter.
With a new year in front of us, we should make sure it's a beneficial one for your smile. Our professional dentists can help you take the necessary steps towards improving your oral health, contact us today to book an appointment.

First impressions are important in a great number of situations, such as interviews and dating. When it comes to your first meeting on a date, what should you be looking to avoid?
A recent survey from Iwhite Instant has found that the second biggest thing that gives a bad impression is imperfect teeth. This was a bigger factor than personal hygiene in a first impression.
It is often said that the first thing that people notice when meeting someone new is their smile. If you feel like your first impression could be improved, we have a wide range of treatments available that could be of use to you.
From orthodontics to implants, book an appointment with your local MSC dentist so you can discuss what treatment is right for you. Additionally, come visit us on 02/03/17 for our Invisalign open evening and a free consultation.
