Happy new year to you and yours! If you’re still working on that New Year’s resolution or aren’t inspired to set one, why don’t you consider improving your smile in 2021? Keeping up with your smile has far-reaching and even surprising benefits. And some benefits happen much faster than other resolutions, which might take months to see improvements. Here are just a few our patients have enjoyed:
- Saving you money. Toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss costs a lot less than dental work to address cavities, infected teeth, gum disease, and lost teeth. Even regular dental checkups will save you thousands over the long run. Both of these preventive measures can prevent dental problems or keep them minimal so we can catch them quickly and treat them in the most conservative way possible. Now consider how much your whole family could save by being proactive!
- Boosting your confidence. A healthy, attractive smile can affect your daily life. It changes how you perceive yourself and how others perceive you. If you aren’t hesitant to smile, you can approach people you might not talk to otherwise. You can speak up when you want, meet people you want to meet, and apply for that job without worrying about your teeth in an interview.
- Giving you peace of mind. If you’re being proactive about your smile, you won’t have to worry as much about getting bad news at the dentist or anticipating the pain from a tooth infection. You’ll know you’ve done all you can do.
- Making you look younger. If your smile has flaws or if you’re missing teeth, correcting those problems can knock years off your appearance. That’s why celebrities keep their teeth white for a perpetually young look. Just take a look at these pictures of whiter smiles and complete smiles.
- Preventing total health complications. Treating gum disease may lower your risk of diabetes complications, heart problems, and more. Restoring infected teeth prevents that infection from spreading outside your mouth. Wearing a sleep apnea appliance can minimize serious related health conditions like stroke.
