Do you wish some sort of magical dental fairy would just show up, sprinkle some glittery dust, and whisper some extremely helpful tips in your ear for easier smile care? While we can’t verify that this creature exists or may be of any help, we can say for certain that if you think your care at home could use some reinforcement or sprucing up, our team happens to be quite knowledgeable (and very happy to help). Some initial tips may prove to be all you really need to get things up to snuff.
Keep Backups Of Everything You Need
You can’t imagine how many ways there are to end up realizing you somehow don’t have a toothbrush that you can use. You might drop yours somewhere yucky. You might take yours on a trip, you leave it behind on accident, you get home and have no way to brush your teeth. The list is one that goes on and on. When you’ve bought some extras, fortunately, you simply cannot run into this annoying smile care problem.
Don’t Rely On Restorative Care
We like to remind patients not to think of restorative care as their first line of defense. The best thing you can do for yourself is to practice excellent preventive smile care. Brushing and flossing every day (and just two-times-a-year visits) is easier than having to schedule appointments for fillings, crowns, etc.
