January 2014: Tips, eNews and More!
Happy New Year!
We hope your holidays were full of good cheer!
Now that you're back in the swing of things, are you keeping to your New Year's resolutions?
If you need some help, remember to keep it simple, measurable and specific. The New Year is a great time to make positive changes, but remember, there is no
bad time for positive change! If you slip a little and fall back on a resolution, don't worry, just pick up from where you are and start again. You have the
whole year ahead of you. If your resolution was worth considering in December, there is no reason to wait until next year.
As we mentioned in December, your health benefits may be based on a calendar year, and if you have any outstanding dental work to be completed, or if you are
maintaining an oral health and hygiene routine that corresponds with your benefits, now is the time to come in and see us. You can request an appointment here.
All the best from,
The Team at St. Clair Dental Associates
Tips for taking care of your brush!
It's recommended that you change your tooth brush at least once every four months. This ensures that the bristles are in good condition for cleaning your teeth. We recommend a soft bristle brush used after every meal with a fluoride toothpaste. Your toothbrush should be stored upright after use and never shared. Also try to avoid letting your toothbrush touch your spouses if you share a holder. After each use, rinse your brush under cold water, give it a good shake and let it air dry.
Don't cover your 'home use' toothbrush as it may create a place for bacteria to flourish. If you use a travel toothbrush, replace it after your trip. It's also a good idea to replace your brush after a cold or illness. If you're interested, ask us about electric toothbrushes on your next visit, as studies have shown that users tend to brush their teeth longer, it could be worth the minor investment.
