Dental Cleanings: 3 Ways To Boost Your Motivation

You might take a look at your toothbrush one morning and suddenly realize you should call us to schedule your dental cleaning with our Ankeny, IA practice. However, you then shrug, forget all about it, and continue on with your day. While we understand you might not get overly excited about cleanings, we do hope you find something that helps you feel motivated to keep up with this very important part of your dental care and smile protection. Think you’re experiencing a bit of a drought at the moment when it comes to that motivation you need so much? Not a problem! We are more than happy to give you some initial ideas.

#1: Think About Whether Or Not You Want A Cavity

Ask yourself if you’d like to develop a cavity. Now follow that up by asking yourself if dealing with gingivitis sounds like fun. If the answer is no, then remember if you don’t come in for dental cleanings every six months, these are very likely to affect you! Yep, for some, this is motivation enough!

#2: Remind Yourself About How Inexpensive Prevention Is…

Remember that when you compare preventive care for your oral health to restorative care, it’s always less expensive to see us twice a year for dental cleanings and checkups. It’s less time consuming, too, and you get to give yourself a pat on the back every time you come in for a checkup and we give you a clean bill of oral health!

#3: Think About All Of The Questions You Have

Perhaps you have a lot of questions you’ve been gathering up every time you brush your teeth. However, you haven’t seen us in a little while, so you haven’t had any way to ask your questions. Keep in mind that our team loves questions because by answering them, we help you feel good about oral health care, we can offer you any relief or insight you’ve been needing, and it keeps the dialogue going that ensures you maintain good habits! So, before you forget, write down your questions and give us a call to schedule your next dental cleaning!
