4 Things You Forgot About Your Smile Care

Smile care is one of those things that just comes with life. If you want a healthy smile, then you have to take care of it, of course! However, since it’s something that’s just always part of your daily experience, it’s easy to sometimes lose sight of the details. You may occasionally feel like it’s a bit of a nuisance, having to care for your teeth and gums. At other moments, you may not really think about the details very much at all because you’re operating on autopilot! Today, our Ankeny, IA team is here to offer some amazing reminders, so you can take an objective look (and smile about it!).

#1: That It Takes A Tiny Bit Of Time

One thing that you can feel over the moon about in terms of your smile care (that you can also sometimes lose sight of)? The fact that your daily care really doesn’t take very much time at all. In fact, all of your preventive care and even some amount of restorative care? All of that together takes very little time, when you add it all up and ask yourself what percentage of your life you spend on your smile. For example: Let’s say you spend five minutes on your smile every day, brushing and flossing. That’s five out of the 1,440 minutes that make up your day. Do you know what that percentage amounts to? It’s 0.3 percent. Yep. Not much.

#2: That It’s All Highly Convenient

Whether you’re brushing your smile twice a day, flossing (just one single time daily), or coming to see us (did we mention that this only needs to happen twice a year?), it’s easy to see that your smile care is convenient. It takes up hardly any time and it offers you exceptional protection. The bulk of your dental care is performed in your very own bathroom!

#3: That It’s Something You Can Improve Instantly

Fortunately, if you suddenly realize your smile care isn’t going as well as it should, it’s something you can fix instantly. You decide to become more dedicated. You call us to schedule a visit. Done!

#4: That It Is A Worthy Investment Of Time And Energy!

Remember that your smile care, all of it, is worthy of your time and energy! When you keep your teeth healthy in the moment, you keep your teeth for life, so you don’t look forward to problems or tooth loss years down the line.
