New Year Resolutions that Bring a Smile to Your Face

new year resolutions

Seeing the dentist may not be your favorite thing to do, but choosing to take care of your oral health makes a wonderful  New Year’s Resolution.

Eating healthy and exercising are important health goals, but your teeth and gums impact your overall health and longevity in a big way.  Inflammation caused by dental problems contributes to major medical conditions like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and cancer, all of which can shorten your life.  Dentistry is no longer just about teeth.

So, if you want to:

  • Keep your teeth and keep them healthy
  • Have a bright and shiny smile that you are confident sharing
  • Avoid the chronic infections like periodontal gum disease
  • Take steps that will improve your potential of living a longer life
  • Maintain your youthful look by refreshing your smile and protecting your health
  • Keep your breath fresh and your smile kissable
  • Help prevent major conditions like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s
  • And, keep on smiling

Make seeing the dentist a part of your New Year Resolutions and schedule an appointment in January to get started.

Call (865) 922-1613 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Ron Smith at Knoxville Family and Sedation Dentistry.  We promise to take good care of you.
