As we enter a New Year, Dr. Ben Johnson and his staff at Johnson Family Dental in Paducah, would like to give a few tips to help make the New Year great when it comes to your dental health.

  1. Commit to Regular Dental Checkups: Start the New Year off right by scheduling regular dental checkups for yourself and your family. Regular visits to Johnson Family Dental will help ensure that your oral health is in top shape and any potential issues are addressed promptly.
  2. Upgrade Your Toothbrush: Consider upgrading your toothbrush to start the year with a fresh and effective oral care routine. Johnson Family Dental recommends using a soft-bristled toothbrush and changing it every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.
  3. Practice Consistent Oral Hygiene: Make a resolution to maintain consistent oral hygiene habits. Brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time and don’t forget to floss daily. Consistency is key to preventing cavities and gum disease.
  4. Watch Your Sugar Intake: Reduce your sugar intake for better oral health. Sugary foods and drinks can contribute to tooth decay and gum problems. Johnson Family Dental suggests choosing healthier snacks and beverages and being mindful of hidden sugars in processed foods.
  5. Protect Your Smile During Activities: If you or your family members are involved in sports or physical activities, consider using a mouthguard to protect your teeth from potential injuries. Johnson Family Dental can provide custom-fit mouthguards for optimal protection.
  6. Stay Hydrated for a Healthy Mouth: Drinking water not only benefits your overall health but also plays a crucial role in maintaining good oral hygiene. Water helps rinse away food particles and bacteria, reducing the risk of cavities. Make it a goal to stay well-hydrated throughout the year.

Remember, Johnson Family Dental is here to support you in achieving your oral health goals. Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year from our family to yours!
