As New Year's Eve approaches, many may be considering a variety of resolutions that could include hitting the gym or reading more books.
However those who are looking to be more health conscious next year may want to consider the simple act of brushing their teeth.
The American Dental Association (ADA) has stressed the importance of good dental health for adults and children of all ages, not just for healthy gums and teeth, but to ensure good overall health.
Plaque buildup can lead to such conditions as gum disease and tooth decay. Those who adhere to a regular routine with their teeth cleaning and stick to brushing twice a day can help maintain good dental health.
Parents can also use the upcoming new year to educate their children on the importance of brushing their teeth. Statistics have shown that if children are taught about dental care, they are more likely to continue caring for their teeth and gums in adulthood.
One important tip from the ADA regarding teeth cleaning is to floss first before brushing because there is more of a chance for the fluoride from the toothpaste to get between the teeth.
