3 Reasons To Stop Feeling Guilty About Your Smile

Do you carry guilt with you regarding your oral health? While we understand you may feel upset about neglecting your smile health, we encourage you to take a different stance. When you give up the feelings of guilt and instead turn to a more proactive approach, you will find that it’s easier than you may have imagined to recapture the healthy teeth and gums you once enjoyed seeing in the mirror. Learn more about why and how to make this shift.

Reason #1: You Can Only Control The Present Moment

You cannot erase your past habits, past damage, or anything else that’s gone on in the past. As a result, reflecting on your guilty conscience for a moment is fine but dwelling on the past won’t get you any forward movement. Focus instead on what you can control: The present moment. Call us, schedule a visit, get your dental hygiene efforts back on track, and you’ll see improved oral health.

Reason #2: Motivation Is Better Than Guilt

Feeling bad won’t make your teeth and gums healthier. Getting motivated, however, will! Transfer that guilt into motivation, so you feel ready to hop on board, make any alterations to your daily and long-term habits that are necessary, and to recommit yourself to excellent oral health.

Reason #3: It Doesn’t Do Anything

You might feel terribly guilty that your smile is not in the great shape you feel it should be. While it’s wonderful to learn a lesson from any bad habits (or neglect) in which you’ve been participating, it won’t actively help you fix the problem. What will help you end up with optimal oral health? Dental hygiene and trips to our practice! So, ditch the guilt and choose to actively make changes instead. Restored smile health is in your immediate future.
