4 Important Ways to Start the New Year with Great Dental Health

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a very Happy New Year, filled with love, laughter, and health! DeCapite Family Dentistry wants all its patients in the Metro Detroit area to enjoy the holidays and to look forward to a safe, healthy 2021. 2020 has been a year like no other with a pandemic that has affected all of us this year. As we close 2020, we must be positive with the possibilities for next year and may even make a few resolutions with new determination to make positive changes in our lives.

Dr. Jim DeCapite strongly recommends these four ways to start the new year with great dental health:

  • Make healthier food choices: Fresh, crunchy fruits and vegetables are great for teeth as well as for overall physical health. Dairy products and sugarless gum are also good choices for dental health.
  • Drink more water. We always think about keeping hydrated during the hot summer months, but it’s also very important during the colder months. A great resolution for dental health and for overall health is to drink plenty of water every day, throughout the year.
  • Brush and floss regularly: Brushing twice a day, for at least two minutes each time, and flossing every day can do wonders for dental health. The professional staff at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry will be happy to show our patients the proper brushing techniques, to get the most out of that four minutes a day!
  • Visit the dentist for a cleaning and a check-up: Regular visits can help the dentist keep teeth extra clean while also checking for issues. Seeing the dentist every six months can help make sure any small issues don’t become bigger problems!

The team at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is ready to help patients in Livonia, Redford, Dearborn Heights, Plymouth, and the surrounding communities learn more techniques so everyone can enjoy good dental health into the new year.
