Feel and Look Younger With Healthy Decisions
- Posted on: Mar 6 2013
New Year’s resolutions give you and others the chance to start anew and change habits. If you haven’t decided your New Year’s resolution, make a priority to incorporate healthy habits into your daily routine for better health and to boost your self-esteem.
Scientific evidence indicates your oral health is correlated with your overall health and many health conditions. When a patient develops periodontal disease, the harmful bacteria inside your mouth grows out of control, which migrate to the bloodstream and causing harmful damage to the rest of the body. These deadly bacteria puts you at risk to serious health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, lower birth weight, premature babies, oral cancer, and much more.
Periodontal disease is easily preventable by consistently brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits. If you spent 2012 practicing poor oral hygiene, make the change for the New Year by programming to brush, floss, and make regular dental visits consistently and efficiently.
Incorporate other healthy habits into your resolution by eating healthy foods, exercising consistently, and avoiding tobacco products. Eating healthy foods provide essential nutrients to your mouth and body. Dairy products contain calcium, and promote strength in your teeth and bones. Eating crunchy fruits and vegetables such as apples and carrots gives your body the right amount of anti-oxidants to function normally, and is also considered “nature’s toothbrush.” The biting motion to breakdown the food generates salvia washing away the food debris and plaque on your teeth.
Dentist in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Flax educates his patients the importance to maintain excellent oral hygiene habits to feel and look younger, and to live longer. He is able to conserve the health and life of your natural smile, but he cannot do it alone. Dedicate the New Year by living a healthy lifestyle with good dental practices, a nutritious diet, regular exercise, and abstaining from tobacco products. These factors all contribute to a healthy smile and overall happiness.
