You know that there’s more than one aspect of your tooth brushing to consider, when you’re taking the time to reflect on the smile care you perform at home. However, when you get down to attempting to reflect on how well you’re doing, you might find creating a personal progress report is somewhat difficult! If you have trouble recalling the brushing-related categories that, when checked off every day and done correctly, can guide you toward wonderful oral health, you end up feeling lost. Never fear, your Rancho Cucamonga, CA team is here and ready to walk you through a quick and ever-important checklist!
#1: Whether You Like Your Brush
You might guess that categories associated with checking in on your best brushing habits are all about clinical details. However, remember that a very important detail to consider is whether you like your dental hygiene products! If you’re not happy with your toothbrush, we encourage you to make a change right now, so you’re glad to follow through with brushing and so it’s enjoyable, too.
#2: Whether It’s The Right “Type”
Talk with us about your toothbrush during your next checkup, if you’re starting to wonder if you’re using the right type of brush. We can very quickly walk you through all of the details you need to know about for optimal dental hygiene and oral health protection, while answering any final questions you may have. For now, remember: Soft bristles, the Seal of Acceptance by the ADA (American Dental Association), and something you like!
#3: Whether You’re Doing It Right
You’re well aware of the fact that if you aren’t brushing correctly, then you’re not completing your dental hygiene successfully, which means you’re probably not enjoying the best oral health protection possible. Since this is certainly distressing, we remind you that brushing correctly is easy to do (so you avoid the need for dental fillings and other restorative care). Consider the main details:
- Do it twice a day
- Brush for two minutes both times you brush
- Brush morning and evening
- Gentle brush all available tooth surfaces for an equal amount of time
- Focus your brushing along your gumline, too
- Brush gently!
#4: Whether It’s Fresh And Clean
Your brush is fresh and clean if: You’re letting it air dry (keeping it out on the counter, bristles facing upward, in a cup, after cleaning your brush) and it’s no older than four months. Simple!
