The toughest thing about a New Year’s resolution is sticking to it. We are only one week into 2015 and many people are already wavering on their pledge. So in this post, we show you how we can help you maintain your resolution all the way to 2016.

Happy 2015 from Jacksonville Dentist Dr. Rittenberg

We can help make 2015 the year of the successful New Year’s resolution.

Meeting More People

The popular saying goes: “Confidence is key.” And when it comes to meeting more people, one of the best ways to radiate confidence is through your smile. By scheduling a smile consultation at our office, we’ll help you reach 100% confidence in your grin. Whether it’s by a teeth-whitening treatment, teeth straightening, or by placing veneers, we’ll forge a plan that will work for you.

Improving Your Health and Weight

In 2014, multiple research articles proved a growing link between oral and overall health. Many of these links involved nutrition. More and more, dentists are finding themselves on the front lines in terms of discovering early symptoms of serious conditions like oral cancer, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.

So if your goal in 2015 is to stay healthy or lose a few pounds, be sure to make your scheduled check-ups. We can recommend changes to your diet if we see evidence of too much sugar intake (one of the main causes of diabetes and heart conditions). It is especially important to see us if you are experiencing any pains in your jaw or mouth. These pains may be symptoms of larger problems that could worsen if left untreated.

Saving Money

Keeping to a schedule of routine check-ups is the best way to prevent small problems growing into expensive procedures. The American Dental Association recommends everyone to see his or her dentist every 3 to 6 months. During the check-up, we can make sure your teeth are strong, clean up small spots of decay, and make sure there are no small fissures or cracks in your teeth that could grow. For the small price of a check-up visit, you could save yourself from very large dental bills.
