Your dental care should never feel like an excruciating, exceptionally challenging, difficult experience. Instead, protecting your smile from potential damage, keeping it clean, and keeping it healthy should actually be quite a breeze to accomplish! However, our Grand Prairie, TX team often hears just the opposite from some of our patients, which leads us to believe you could potentially use some reminders about areas of care that can seem full of obstacles (but don’t need to). Remember: If you need help making any aspect of care simpler, just let us know!
#1: Your Brushing
The brushing part of your dental care should be extremely easy! Remember that when you’re brushing your smile, you should be doing so two times every day. It should take just two minutes each time you brush (no more, no less). You should like the toothpaste you’re using and you should finish your session feeling like your smile is nice and clean! If at any point you feel like any part of your experience with brushing is a struggle, rather than a breeze, but you’re not sure why, you need to bring this to our attention. We can help.
#2: Flossing, Too!
Guess what? Flossing should be easy, as well. Unlike brushing, which happens twice a day, flossing happens just once! It takes as much time as you need to carefully yet thoroughly cleanse your smile. For some, this becomes a challenge if holding the floss and navigating it is difficult. Ask for a demo! We can make it easy.
#3: Considering Habits
If you’re going back and forth in terms of whether a particular habit is A-OK for your smile or not, then you are probably overthinking things! You might also need to spend some time at our practice, asking questions. When you have a solid concept of what your smile needs, how to protect your oral health, and how to practice optimal dental care, your daily choices become simple. You know which foods to avoid to keep your teeth safe, which foods to avoid to keep your jaw safe, how to avoid overworking your smile, and how to make wise decisions to avoid decay! Once you have the knowledge, it’s a breeze.
