Addressing Challenges With Morning Dental Care

While trying to deal with nighttime dental care can present its own issues (maybe you fall asleep before you brush sometimes!), our Grand Prairie, TX team is aware that morning smile care often brings with it its own set of challenges. Remember that we are always here to help you with your own unique concerns, which you are welcome to bring up during checkups with our team! For now, let’s cover some frequent areas of frustration, so you can see that there’s always an easy and effective solution!

You Feel Rushed: Get Up Two Minutes Earlier!

We are well aware that you probably want to get all of the sleep you can get in the morning! Most people feel this way! However, we also remind you that if you’re feeling extremely rushed (to the point that getting through morning dental care feels difficult), fixing this problem is often as easy as getting up just two minutes earlier. Remember, two minutes is all you need to thoroughly brush for your morning dental hygiene session!

You Don’t Have Time To Floss: Do It At Night!

Maybe you have always flossed in the morning. However, whether life has changed, responsibilities have changed, your schedule is different, or anything else is making it easy to brush but difficult to find time to include flossing in your morning dental care routine, it’s fine. Just switch to flossing at night! It may feel different but it will make accomplishing the entirety of your preventive care so much easier.

You Plan On Coffee Once You Leave: Grab Water, Too

Maybe you grab coffee on the way out of your home in the morning. You worry this means leaving acids (and maybe sugar) on your teeth after you’ve already brushed. The easy answer: Grab a water, too. Rinse after your coffee to help cleanse acids and sugars from your smile!

Your Products Are Never Available: Use Multiple Sets

Are you someone who likes to bring your toothbrush and toothpaste to work with you? Maybe you have a household full of people and someone is always grabbing your dental hygiene items and not returning them. To fix this problem, we encourage you to set up multiple sets of dental care items. Keep one at work that stays there. Put your own set out of the reach of others and never remove any of those items from your bathroom. Give kids, spouses, etc., their own dedicated products, too. Done!
