What To Remember: When You Don’t Want To Brush

If you think you are the only person who occasionally just doesn’t feel like brushing your teeth, think again! This is something we hear about frequently. We also field questions about what might happen if someone just stopped brushing altogether. While it may be tempting to skip, to sort-of brush, or to just give it up we remind you that there are some details to keep in mind regarding brushing and your oral health. If you’re not serious about your dental hygiene, then you may end up facing serious consequences!

You Should Ask Yourself Why

First, you should ask yourself why you don’t want to brush. In many cases, there’s a very easy solution once you figure out why you are feeling resistant. For instance, consider the following:

  • You don’t like your toothpaste: Try a new one!
  • You loathe your toothbrush: Use a different one.
  • It hurts: See us for a checkup.
  • You feel rushed: Schedule your dental hygiene sessions ahead of time.
