Top 4 Dental Resolutions for Healthier Teeth in 2023

As the year has come to an end, you may be thinking about what goals you accomplished this year and beginning to make new goals for this one. Why not make improving your dental health one of them? Eastport Dental is your premiere provider of comprehensive general, cosmetic, and implant dentistry in Mesa, AZ. Here are just a few ways you can improve your dental health in 2023.

Upgrade to an Electric Toothbrush

Studies have proved that brushing with an electric toothbrush is more effective than using a manual toothbrush alone. There has never been a better time than now to make the switch from a manual to an electric toothbrush.

Electric toothbrushes can thoroughly clean areas around teeth and implants that manual toothbrushes may not reach or clean adequately enough. They are typically made with soft bristles that are gentle to the gum tissue, and most have a two-minute timer to ensure you are brushing the recommended length of time every time.

There are two main types of electric toothbrushes, sonic and oscillating. This difference between the two is how the head of the toothbrush moves. Sonic electric toothbrushes are shaped similarly to manual toothbrushes and use tiny sonic vibrations against the teeth. Oscillating electric toothbrushes are typically round in shape and utilize a rotating movement, similar to a dental polishing tool used in the office.

Both types of electric toothbrushes are great tools that will improve your dental health in 2023. Let the trained staff of Eastport help you decide which electric toothbrush is best for you!

Schedule Any Unfinished Dental Treatment

At Eastport Dental of Mesa, we understand that you may not be able to complete all of your dental work, all at the same time. In some cases, dentistry needs to be broken up into several appointments spanning over a longer period, depending on priorities, health needs, and your family’s budget. Your optimum dental health can be a long-term but achievable goal.

By prioritizing your treatment and utilizing dental benefits each year, you can plan by adding to your health savings account (HSA), flex spending account (FSA), or looking into monthly payment options. You can enter the new year with a solid plan to continue to make strides toward your dental health goal.


At Eastport Dental, we try our best to help our Mesa, AZ, area clients make the most of their dental insurance benefits. Our highly trained and welcoming staff will take the time to review your treatment plan, let you know how much has been billed to your insurance and how much is left on your plan.

Professionally Whiten Your Teeth With Glo

Using the latest LED technology, Glo quickly and safely lightens your teeth without any pain or damage to your tooth enamel.

Replace Missing Teeth With Dental Implants

Dental Implants have become the most reliable way to replace missing teeth. Whether you are missing a single tooth, several teeth, or struggle with ill-fitting dentures, implants can be a life-changing decision that will drastically improve your life and your health. Dr. Huynh, DMD is the implant dentist you can trust in Mesa, AZ.

Eastport Dental of Mesa provides patients with the highest quality single-tooth implants, implant-supported bridges, implant-supported dentures, and All-on-4 Implants.

By permanently replacing missing teeth with titanium dental implants, you can have the bite strength you once had with natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods again. With All-On-4 Implants, an entire arch of teeth is replaced with a permanently fixed dental prosthesis that looks and feels just like healthy teeth. Dental implants can eliminate the worry of ill-fitting dentures or removable partials.
