Do you occasionally look at your toothbrush and wonder if there is anything in the world you could do to make your dental care more fun? Certainly there must be some way to feel like you’re enjoying the experience of keeping your smile clean and healthy! While this is something we commonly discuss for children, it is important to remember that adults are kids at heart – everyone likes to feel good about their daily habits rather than bored. Do yourself a favor and consider some helpful suggestions that might infuse your dental hygiene will a little excitement.
The majority of your dental care happens at home as you brush your teeth and floss every day. Though you may feel perfectly okay about this routine, you may wish to add a bit of joy to your sessions. Consider incorporating the following to perk up your preventive care:
- Reconsider the products you usually purchase. Perhaps you would like to try out a new brush with different features, a bright color, or even an electric version. Try a new toothpaste flavor or a new type of floss – changing things up can liven up the experience.
- Take this time to enjoy music – there’s nothing like adding an enjoyable melody into your time spent brushing to make those two minutes fly by!
When it comes to preventive dental care visits with us, rest assured that we do everything we can to ensure your experience is enjoyable. To make sure you’re having a nice visit, we encourage you to speak up – let us know if you are cold (we have warm blankets!) or if you have questions. You should also feel free to bring you MP3 player with you with a favorite playlist and wear something comfortable.
