Do you find that you spend a surprising amount of energy stressing or worrying about dental care? You might not even notice the amount of tension that builds up regarding keeping your smile healthy until you reflect on your usual approach. For instance, do you exert a lot of thought trying to figure out when to schedule a cleaning and whether you really need to? Maybe you go over and over your hygiene routine in your mind, wondering if you’re doing the right thing. Fortunately, this is all very simple to accomplish. Give us just a moment of your time and we will help!
Stop Rationalizing Your Visits
We have heard this from many patients before! You spend time thinking about when you schedule your dental cleaning and checkup with us. You figure that coming in too soon is not worthwhile. Then, you realize that your teeth and gums seem to be perfectly okay, so you determine that you’d probably be just fine waiting a year or more until your next dental care visit. You might even come up with other reasons this is a good idea (like you can save money or plan something else instead of an appointment). The easiest way to de-stress? Plan your visit every six months. It’s what we recommend.
Streamline Your Home Efforts
About those home efforts of yours: Your dental care at home is very important for keeping your smile healthy. However, it’s not something that should be making you feel upset or stressed out. Streamline your approach by getting more organized and by asking us questions! We would love to help you choose dental hygiene items that work for you (and that you like). Just focus on the absolute basic requirements (brush twice and floss once every day). It’s truly that simple to achieve great results.
