2023 The Year of Great Dental Health
Hope can be defined as “the expectation that good things will happen.” Is that how you feel about 2023? True hope is not based on fantasy or wishful thinking, rather, an optimistic person has real reasons to expect good things. After the last two years, what reasons do you have to call 2023 the year of hope?
Are We Emerging From the Pandemic?
Governments around the world have lowered or in many cases abolished COVID-19 restrictions. This gives us reason to hope that we are emerging from the pandemic. Despite recent spikes in cases of the virus in Ontario, and our hospitals experiencing more sickness in general, most COVID-19 infections are much less life threatening than in the past, with many experiencing only mild symptoms.
Luck is Created
With the ball dropping in Time Square USA, and the new year beginning, many of us are hoping for a fresh start. What can help us to build on our enthusiasm and become increasingly optimistic about 2023? Some believe you make your own luck. Sports teams often find that when their hard efforts find them winning games, positive things follow suit. We can apply this idea to many areas of life. Consider how this is true when it comes to our dental health.
Set Realistic Goals
Good oral health doesn’t happen because of luck, rather consistent hard work and the setting of realistic goals can result in good things happening to you. Many new years resolutions fail because they are too extensive and become overwhelming. If you have poor dental health, or have a history of failure, begin with some simple goals. Then, concentrate on making them a practice or lifestyle one at a time. Make 2023 the year of hope and focus forward on progress not on past failures.
Small and positive steps can include:
- Brushing once each day
- Brushing twice each day
- Add flossing to your routine
- Get back to regular dentist visits
- Have any cavities repaired
- Work on whitening your teeth
Experts say that a habit or lifestyle change takes approximately two weeks to become a routine. Therefore, pick one thing at a time and gradually make your own oral health a reality. You have every reason to hope for excellent teeth and gums.
