A Few Smile Things You Don’t Have To Feel Weird About

There are some things that may cause you to feel embarrassment or shyness well up in relation to the way you care for your smile. Maybe your oral health protection to you means keeping certain dental hygiene items with you at all times so that, no matter what, you can feel sure your smile is clean! Or, maybe you have been thinking about something for a long time and you want to talk with us about it but you feel funny. Here’s our major reminder for the day from our Ankeny, IA team: You don’t have to feel weird about your actions if you’re protecting your smile! Let’s highlight a few examples, so you see what we’re saying.

#1: Scheduling Visits Months In Advance

You might feel weird about calling us to set up your year’s worth of dental care visits. Maybe you love knowing exactly when you’re going to see us, you know that you have your twice-annual checkups and cleanings ready, so there’s no way you’re going to accidentally forget about them. However, you may worry that we think you’re a little bit odd for calling up in advance. Whether you’re mapping out your year or you’re just a few months ahead of things, we completely understand, suggest this approach, and we offer you a round of applause. There’s nothing quite like having your smile care completely ready to go, so you can relax.

#2: Carrying Floss With You (Everywhere)

Whether you’re someone who always has floss in your pocket, you have a full set of smile care products in your office desk, etc., remember: There is nothing weird about being prepared to remove plaque, sugar, food, and more from your smile. This will take you and your oral health far in life!

#3: Asking What You Think Are “Stupid” Questions

Surely, at some point over the course of your lifetime, you heard someone say something to the effect of the only stupid question is the one you don’t ask. We always hope that our patients remember there are no stupid questions when your intention is to keep your smile healthy and to optimize your approach. Trust us when we say that whether you aren’t sure if you’re holding your toothbrush the right way or you really feel compelled to ask us why you have to floss every day, we are happy to guide you! Doesn’t matter what it is, as long as we are helping you feel educated, as you support the health of your grin!
