5 Ways To Improve Dental Hygiene

fivegoldAre you under the impression that your dental hygiene sessions are “okay” but you wouldn’t argue if we offered you some ways to make them even better? In addition to completing your brushing and flossing, while feeling like you have excelled, it’s always nice to have enjoyed yourself, as well. So, let’s review some helpful ideas that will make you feel confident about keeping your smile nice and healthy.

#1: Use What You Like

If you don’t like a particular aspect of your dental hygiene experience, change it. Toss the yucky toothpaste aside and purchase one that tastes amazing. Brush your teeth earlier in the evening, so you’re not too tired to do it before bed. Whatever it takes.

#2: Set A Timer

Feel like you’re probably rushing through your dental hygiene session? Make sure the brushing portion lasts a full two minutes for the best results by setting a timer. Simple!

#3: Ask Us Questions

Do you have questions about your dental hygiene? Ask us during your next visit. We are ready to provide you with a wealth of knowledge – all you have to do is let us know what you need help with.

#4: Focus

If you’re doing a million other things (or even one other thing) while you try to brush and floss your teeth, you will probably miss a spot – or several. Focus on the task at hand and you will be pleased with the results.

#5: Do The Same Thing Every Day

When you brush and floss at different times every day or allow yourself to skip a brushing or flossing session here or there, dental hygiene can begin to feel like a burden. Instead, remain as consistent as possible, so it begins to feel like second nature.
