Dental Hygiene: How To Get Back On Track With Care

Are you on track with your dental hygiene? Are you shaking your head from side to side, which means that the answer is a big “nope,” but you don’t know what to do to make things better? Don’t worry too much! This can happen to patients from time to time! As long as you have good intentions, our Columbia, TN team can most certainly help you get your care back on track!


Let Us Help You

Do yourself a huge favor and simply admit to our team that you are absolutely not having a successful run with dental hygiene at the moment. While you may assume we will simply shrug our shoulders and say, “Well, just do it anyway,” this is not the case. We can easily begin asking you some questions that may reveal the source of your problem. We can also go through the basics with you regarding effective brushing and flossing. In some cases, what you really need is to feel like you know what you’re doing and why it’s important and that will be all the motivation you require!

Make The Environment More Inviting

Do you loathe entering your own bathroom? If so, this might be the simple issue deterring you from entering, brushing and flossing, and then feeling good about having completed your dental hygiene for the day. Maybe you need to clean your bathroom. Perhaps you dislike the lighting. Maybe it’s just boring in there and you either need to spruce it up with some happy decor or you just need to turn on a lively playlist during your dental care. Improve your surroundings!

End The Randomness Of Your Sessions

If dental hygiene is always something you need to try to squeeze into your day and you’re sometimes brushing in the afternoon and at night and other times in the morning, then you almost fall asleep but drag yourself out of bed to brush and floss, you may start to resent it. Don’t let this happen to you. Make a plan that actually works with your lifestyle, so you can easily avoid decay and more. You’ll find that when you carve out time ahead of time, caring for your smile starts to feel much easier.
