Remind Yourself During These Moments: I Must Brush!

Sometimes, you don’t brush your teeth. Right? Well, if you happen to be someone who always brushes twice a day, then we offer you our applause and admiration! However, if you find that there are moments in which you just give in to whatever is going on that seems more important or pressing, then our Ankeny, IA team has some suggestions for you! While we can certainly empathize, we also remind you that there are usually ways to work around your challenge, so you can be sure you’re keeping your dental hygiene and your oral health on the right track!

When You’re Just Too Tired

Our team knows that there are many levels of feeling tired. Sometimes, you’re tired from a hard day at the office. Sometimes, you have a new baby and you’re dealing with exhaustion you never thought possible! While this can really make it hard to convince yourself to brush, we remind you that taking the two minutes to do so is much easier than having to carve time out for a filling in the future. Remember to brush the moment you have the time to do so, such as the moment you’re through with dinner and unwinding and you’re about to put on your pajamas. That way, you won’t be faced with suddenly remembering that it’s time for dental hygiene as you’re getting into bed!

When You Don’t Have Time

Whether it’s your dental hygiene session, the cleaning and checkup we suggest, or anything else, it’s very easy to convince yourself that the excuse of, “I just don’t have time!” is something that’s okay to rely on. The reason it isn’t okay? Your teeth can’t gain any protection from this detail. Even if you really do have a packed schedule, your smile will still suffer consequences if you don’t follow through with the proper dental care. So, here’s what we suggest: Take a moment to look at your daily schedule and figure out a way you can give yourself two minutes in the morning and two in the evening during to brush. That’s all it takes. Plan ahead and you won’t have to feel so rushed!
