Why Don’t You Feel Like Brushing Your Teeth?

Not really in the mood to brush your teeth as often as you should be (which, in case you’ve forgotten, is twice daily!)? Not really in the mood to do it ever? However, you are well aware that you should brush because if you don’t, you’re making yourself vulnerable to a whole medley of problems, from bad breath to the development of tooth decay, infection, and more! Today, rather than simply reminding you to brush, our Southlake, TX team would like to get to the bottom of why you’d rather not (and what you can do about it!). For all other dental hygiene concerns, give us a call!

It Hurts

Are you generally not in the mood to brush your teeth because it hurts? We always remind patient that when it comes to any aspect of preventive dental care, the process should not include any amount of pain or discomfort. When you realize that you’re avoiding the dental care your smile needs because it doesn’t feel good, it’s time to reflect. First, ask yourself if you’re being gentle. If not, that may be your sole cause of frustration (so ease up!). Then, realize that you should come in for a dental checkup with us. It’s very possible that you have a problem (that needs treatment) that we can fix very quickly, so brushing feels okay again.

It Doesn’t Seem To Be Working

Of course, you don’t really mind brushing so much. It’s the fact that you keep practicing your dental hygiene but you don’t seem to be enjoying any major reward for it. You would really like to know that your efforts in brushing are allowing you to maintain a healthy smile but something seems off. If this is the case, then we remind you that you don’t have to be shy about coming in to see us! Set up a dental checkup and cleaning. Tell us about what’s been going on. We have the information you’re lacking and will be happy to share (and offer examples), so you know how to improve.

You’re Too Tired Once You’re In Bed

Feeling to sleepy to get back up out of bed in the evening in order to brush your teeth? So, instead, you just go to sleep and feel guilty the next morning? Don’t do this! Make life easy and protect your smile. We remind you to always practice dental hygiene before you get into bed for the night. Easy.
