When You Dislike Smile Care: Helpful Insight

When you dislike your smile care, you may just assume it’s that plain and simple. You just don’t like brushing, you’re not a fan of flossing, and the idea of coming in for dental checkups and cleanings is just not your cup of tea (so to speak). However, our Southlake, TX team would argue that there’s actually more to what’s going on with your feeling toward oral health protection than you realize. In fact, if you were to take a slightly different outlook and approach, you would find that you feel perfectly fine if not kindly toward dental care! Consider our ideas on the topic!

Change Your Flavors

If you feel not-so-wonderful toward smile care, you may figure it’s just how you are, it’s just all about preferences, and that’s the end of the story. However, we frequently discover that patients are often solely turned away from practicing dental hygiene on the basis of disliking the flavors and textures involved. Take just a bit of time to swap out flavors for toothpaste and dental floss, have some fun with new textures for those items as well, and you might find that it actually becomes enjoyable!

Change Your Approach

What’s your approach like? If you don’t really have one but you feel like you’re just guessing, it can feel very defeating. When you know that you’re following our suggestions exactly and you’re achieving a job well done, it’s easy to work your way through the brushing and flossing, protecting yourself against issues like decay, and then give yourself a pat on the back. Not sure how to practice smile care at home? Just ask us!

Work With, Not Against, Your Schedule

From the care you practice at home to the smile care visits we recommend you set up every six months, if you’re working against your schedule, it can make you feel negative about dental care. Instead, work with your schedule. Figure out how you can practice dental hygiene twice a day and see us twice a year in a way that actually makes sense for your calendar! It might take the stress away, so you can feel good about it.
