Happy New Year from your dental team here at Yew Tree.
Let me take the opportunity to welcome any new patients to our mail letter and thank our existing patients for your support and loyalty throughout last year. I hope this new year finds you all well and we look forward to seeing each and everyone in the coming year.

Like many people, you may resolve to lead a healthier lifestyle each New Year. Have you considered enhancing your dental health as a goal? Good dental health habits not only promote healthy teeth and a beautiful smile, but contribute to your overall health as well.
Resolutions encourage you to go beyond what you’ve been doing so far and challenge yourself in ways you never thought you could. While you may have your own resolutions you want to achieve, why not try adding some New Year resolutions for your teeth into the mix? Healthier teeth can lead to a brighter smile and more smiling puts you and the people around you in a happier mood. For instance the following 5 are a  great start.

EAT HEALTHY – A healthy diet is important for maintaining good dental health. Nutrients in fruits, vegetables, dairy products and whole grains strengthen teeth and fight bacteria that cause gum disease. Make a point this year to incorporate more tooth-healthy foods in your daily diet.

CONTROLL YOUR SWEET TOOTH – Sugary snacks and beverages are your teeth’s worst enemy. When sugars are broken down in your mouth, they produce acids that wear away your enamel and cause tooth decay. Make it a goal this year to limit your intake of sweets, for your health and your teeth!

QUIT USING TOBACCO PRODUCTS – Tobacco use can cause all kinds of oral health problems, including:

  • Bad breath
  • Stained teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth loss
  • Oral cancer

If you currently use tobacco, consider quitting this year. Instead, try out a healthier habit, like chewing sugar free gum, which stimulates the flow of saliva that washes away bacteria.

BRUSH AND FLOSS – Brushing and flossing your teeth are the first line of defense against oral health complications. If you don’t brush and floss as recommended, plaque can develop on and between teeth causing decay and gum disease, which can in turn lead to other health problems like heart disease. Recommendations for most patients is brush twice a day and floss or use te-pe at night when you maybe you have a little more time.

VISIT YOUR DENTIST REGULARLY – Scheduling regular checkups allows your dentist to monitor your dental health and address any concerns before they become bigger problems. Visiting your dentist every six months is the best way to ensure a clean bill of dental health, so this year, schedule regular appointments and keep your mouth in good shape.

You owe a lot to those teeth and gums of yours. Do them a favor this New Year by practicing excellent dental health habits and smile big in 2018

 Many of us make new years resolutions and don't keep them. Because usually we make ourselves unrealistic goals. These three are achievable I'm sure you agree?

I know this news letter will not reach you in time to register for dry January. If you have tried this I would be most interested to hear any of your thoughts and tips. If any of you have well done!!

The Festival of Sleep Day was created for people that would like to get some “shut eye” and relaxation after the holidays. After the Christmas shopping and present opening deadlines and the New Year celebrations, it’s time to celebrate — in “Sleep Land”. Observe this wacky and unofficial holiday on January 3rd.

So here we are already the end of January!! I hope this new letter finds all of you well and refreshed from Christmas and New years celebrations. Just a few things we are hopping to achieve in the following couple of months. A dental workshop for local schools/nurseries. We are really hopping to become more involved with our surrounding community. We have approached Little Sapplings  Day Nursery and also the Hub which many of you will know as your local community center. So many exciting new things for us to help and hopefully you’ll agree will improve the dental health of our community.

Next month coming up its National toothache day on the 9th of February! This serves as a reminder to book in your dental examination.
