The New Year: Sometimes, You Should Just Resolve To Get Started

When you are looking forward to a brand new year, it’s very easy to get swept up in the promise that a clean slate offers! As a result, rather than coming up with resolutions that will be quite easy for you to follow through on, you may find yourself resolving for things that require a complete, lengthy, complex experience. The unfortunate outcome of such excessive optimism sometimes includes feeling overwhelmed and then giving up. Our Southlake, TX team thinks there may be a much better way to go about coming up with your oral health resolutions this year, so you can follow through with success: Resolve to get started!

Resolve To Get Started With Care

First, we encourage you to resolve to simply get started with your dental care. If you haven’t been keeping up with the basics, don’t overdo it and decide that you’re going to become a prevention fanatic! Instead, begin at the beginning, so you can comfortably transition into better care at home and with our team. This is very easy to do. Just make sure that you’re brushing twice daily and flossing. Then, call us up to set up a checkup and cleaning. Easy.

Resolve To Get Started With A Treatment

Maybe you have some problems with your oral health right now and your usual approach is to resolve to completely have your smile restored and in perfect condition as the new year begins. We encourage you to stop thinking about the very end result and instead to decide to just get started. Call our team to schedule a time to come in to talk about the care you need and to set up your first treatment! The rest can then unfold naturally.

Resolve To Get Started With Better Habits

Our team knows that you may wish you had better dental care habits, so that you know your oral health will be in good shape. However, you may find that you become frustrated when you try to do too much. Avoid heading out to buy tons of new products or giving yourself a hard time. Instead, just focus doing things the right way and giving yourself sufficient time to do so. The following will help:

  • Use a soft-bristle toothbrush and brush gently
  • Use floss you enjoy and floss gently
  • Use a timer to be sure you’re brushing for two minutes
