You might feel like caring for your smile is one of those things that should just happen organically throughout the day. This is completely fine, assuming you are good at living your life this way. However, if the result ends up being that you miss dental hygiene sessions occasionally, you fall asleep at night without brushing, you run out of toothpaste, etc., then it may be time for a reboot! Consider scheduling out your day (it doesn’t have to be super stringent), so you don’t ever end up missing the essential oral health care you need.
Get Hygiene On Track
If you’re having trouble keeping up with your dental hygiene, it might have something to do with the fact that you don’t have any structure in place. It’s so easy to create some, so your oral health care at home is on a gentle schedule! Make decisions that are easy for you to keep up with. Choose a time in the morning and one in the evening that you should brush (make sure you floss during one of these times). Schedule alerts in your phone. Easy.
Get Serious About Shopping Lists
If you don’t keep lists of things that you need and you tend to find that you visit the store multiple times a week because you keep forgetting to put something in your basket, start keeping a running list. It’s much easier to remember that you need a new toothbrush (or something else for your oral health care) this way.
Keep A Calendar (Your Phone Will Do!)
Keep a calendar on your phone. Give yourself reminders, so your time for a dental checkup and cleaning doesn’t pass you by. Remember to write down visits once you’ve scheduled them, too! It makes quite a difference.
