Dentist offers tips for better oral health in 2012  

This New Year's Day, most people will be making resolutions to lose weight, spend less money or get a new job. According to, those are some of the top goals that Americans set for themselves as each new year rolls around. What's missing from this list is "improving oral care," which is something that millions of U.S. residents need to do.

Recently, San Antonio cosmetic dentist Edward Camacho offered some suggestions for goals that people can set for themselves that will improve their dental health this year.

First, make a resolution to brush at least twice daily, and to visit the dentist for a cleaning at least twice a year. According to Camacho, along with cleanings and other basic procedures, dentists can screen for oral cancer. This disease, when caught early, has an 80 to 90 percent survival rate.

Next, the expert suggested that people take time thinking about what they are eating. He recommends avoiding sugar whenever possible, especially considering that oral health and diabetes are closely associated.

The dentist finished by reminding people of one simple fact.

"If you are hitting the local coffeehouse chain a few times a week, then over the course of a year, you will spend more than you would getting your teeth cleaned and checked twice a year and handling an occasional small cavity," said Camacho.
