The Danger of Making Your Oral Hygiene Routine Boring
Posted on 1/25/2018 by Moyer Office
You may ask, is your ritual to brush your teeth before bedtime okay? The answer is in a sense yes and no. Variety is the spice of life, and that applies to your dental health as well.
Brushing your teeth two to three times a day is the requirement for a good dental health for anyone. But it is just that, a requirement. Why not go beyond the requirement and aim for healthier teeth and gums?
What Can be Done to Improve Dental Health and Make Teeth and Gums Healthier?
There is actually a lot that you can do. One thing you can do is to use a rinse or a mouthwash after you brush your teeth.
Since brushing your teeth wipes away bacteria and plaque, having an extra dose of antiseptic rinse can help you maintain that protected environment in your mouth. Not only can this lead to much stronger teeth and gums, this would also protect your mouth.
The second thing you can do is to floss after eating. You can use toothpicks, but toothpicks can lead to wounds, particularly to those with sensitive or weak gums. The lesser specks of food found in your mouth, the more plaque and bacteria will be removed when you brush your teeth.
There is nothing wrong with making a good habit a part of your life. However, why be content with what is good when you can get something better? Having healthy teeth is good, but having a habit that reinforces you to be healthier is even better.
Other than flossing and rinsing, another great idea is to switch the way you brush your teeth and finding other products that will work best for you. You can set an appointment and we will help you improve and find other ways in making your dental health better than ever before.
