New Year’s Goals for Your Smile: Simple Goes a Long Way

Woman in Dentist Chair Gving a Thumbs Up Roswell, GA

How many times have you made a New Year’s resolution, only to fall short before spring? As 2019 begins, we encourage you to make goals for a healthier you. However, please make them attainable. When it comes to your dental health, you don’t have to make lofty resolutions that aren’t realistic. In fact, the best ways to protect your oral health are quite simple – and definitely doable.

Here are four SIMPLE resolutions for a healthier and more confident smile in 2019:

#1 Buy a New Toothbrush.

Go ahead and treat yourself to a new toothbrush this year. After all, you should be using this valued tool twice a day for two minutes per session. If you buy a new brush now, you can mark it on your calendar to purchase again in spring, as toothbrushes need to be replaced every 3 months or when the bristles look frayed. If you want to upgrade your toothbrush, consider an electric or powered version. Ask your dentist for recommendations!

#2 Floss!

Nearly half of the American population admits they do not floss daily. Flossing is one of the most important steps in keeping your mouth clean and your wallet safe from costly treatments down the road. Make a commitment this year to put your flossing excuses aside. It only takes a few minutes out of your day to pick up your flossing thread and clean between your teeth. In doing so, you’ll put yourself at a much lower risk for gum disease, decay and bad breath. If you are not a fan of the feeling of dental floss, invest in a water flosser to get the job done.

#3 Visit the Dentist At Least Twice this Year

For nearly every patient, two dental visits (six months apart) is recommended for optimal oral health. This is for good reason. Your teeth need a professional cleaning (beyond what you can accomplish at home) in order to remove stubborn plaque and stains. In addition, if you are seeing the dentist every six months, there’s not too much time for a dental problem to fester and require complex treatment. In other words, we can detect a cavity or gum disease at its earliest, most treatable stage. Lastly, if you have dental insurance, there’s no reason not to attend your preventative visits – as these are typically covered in full.

#4. SMILE More Often!

If your teeth are healthy, you can feel confident in smiling more. But, did you know that the act of smiling can improve your mood, stress level and immune system! Discover the remarkable facts and benefits of smiling.

At Mitzi Morris, DMD, we’d love to do our part in helping you achieve a healthier smile this year. We hope that you can add these very simple resolutions to your New Year’s goals in 2019. Start now by scheduling that first routine checkup!

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

    Cathy Q
  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

    Christopher P
  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

    David G
  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
