New Year Resolutions By A Dentist

Posted on:

January 1, 2021

The first day of the new year is a great time to make commitments to better ourselves. During the lockdown, we got a lot of time to binge on our favorite foods. To help you maintain your oral health through this binge-fest, Fisher & Orfaly Dental wants to share some fairly easy and practical dental tips that you can implement in 2021. 

Brush for Two Minutes Twice A Day

Always brush twice a day for two minutes for healthier teeth, fresh breath, fewer cavities, and to avoid dental problems.

Replace Your Toothbrush

Replacing your toothbrush every 3 months or sooner if the bristles are frayed will help in creating a healthy mouth.

Floss daily

Flossing is part of being mouth healthy.

Chew sugarless gum

Chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent dental cavities.

Eat Healthy

Eating a balanced diet and limiting in-between meal snacks will help increase oral health.

Drink Fluoridated Water

Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent dental cavities by making teeth stronger and more resistant to the acid that causes cavities.

See Your Dentist

Regular dental visits will help ensure better oral health. You can always reach us at 978-744-1209 for any questions or for scheduling your consultations.

Coming to Dr Orfaly is The best decision I could have made. I didn’t have a dentist for years and they saw me when I had an emergency. Now I am getting all of my dental work here, perfect caps, bridges and hygiene. I highly recommend Dr Orfaly and his staff.

After having a negative experience with a filling with a past dentist, I was nervous to go to a new dentist with tooth pain. Dr. Orfaly and team were very understanding and knowledgable when walking me through my options for a cracked tooth. 10/10 would recommend due to their professionalism, attention to detail, and level of care. Thanks team!

Dr Orfaly is the best dentist around! I have alot of anxiety around going to the dentist & Dr Orfaly always makes sure to check in to see how I'm doing & is so nice. If a referral is needed to a specialist, he makes the call for you & gets you an appt quickly (mine was even the same day) I love how they book you with the same dental hygienist for all cleanings.. Adds another level of comfort... Shoutout to mine, Kathy!
