Happy New Year from the Smiles for Kids Pediatric Dentistry team! As everyone is making resolutions, here are some that can benefit your beautiful smile!
1. Brush twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste.
2. Floss nightly.
3. Avoid sugary, chewy or gummy foods because they get stuck in the nooks and crannies of teeth and cause cavities to form. This includes “healthy” foods like raisins/fruit leathers and gummy vitamins.
4. Limit sweet or acidic drink intake like juices, sodas and energy drinks. This includes organic 100% juices.
5. Increase water intake.
6. Increase cavity-fighting foods like cheese, yogurt, leafy greens and nuts.
We hope you get to incorporate some or ALL of these ideas for a healthy 2017!
