THE SMILE THEY DESERVE!

Easy New Year Dental Resolutions

Published on December 15th, 2017

Are you looking for ways to make your smile brighter and healthier in 2018? As your dentist in the South Loop, we want your 2018 to be the best year yet. Our team has created a list of simple new year’s resolutions that could help to improve your oral health and get the smile you have always dreamed of.

Improve Your Brushing Habits

Brush your teeth for a minimum of two minutes two times a day. Brushing your teeth twice a day leads to good breath, fewer cavities, and avoids painful dental problems.

Make Time To Floss

As a dentist in the South Loop, we often hear from clients that simply do not have time to floss. In 2018, make time for flossing a priority. Floss is specifically made to remove plaque from the tight spaces between the teeth and under your gums. Brushing alone is not enough to remove this plaque. The ADA suggests that you floss before and after you brush to make brushing more effective.

Choose Sugarless Gum

Did you know that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes a day following meals can prevent tooth decay?

Visit Your Dentist

Visit your dentist in the South Loop regularly for cleanings! Here at South & West Loop Dental, our team is able to provide general and cosmetic dentistry services. While daily brushing, rinsing, and flossing are great steps to take for your oral health, inevitably there will be buildup on tooth surfaces and between teeth that these practices cannot fully treat. Call us today to schedule your first appointment in 2018 at (312) 733-8040.
