These oral healthcare tips may as well be considered “life hacks” because not only will they improve the health and strength of your teeth and gums, they will also improve your quality of life!
- Keep Your Toothbrush Fresh
- Invest In an Electric Toothbrush
- Schedule Your Routine Dental Cleanings
You don’t need to use a new toothbrush every single day. That’s would be wasteful and completely unnecessary. What you should do, however, is replace your toothbrush or toothbrush head every three to four months. At that point, your toothbrush is getting worn down enough from its daily usage that the bristles are frayed, making them less effective at cleaning.
If you’ve considered getting an electric toothbrush, now would be a great time to try one. There are several reasons to love electric toothbrushes! Many of them have built-in timers so you know you’re always brushing for the recommended amount of time (two minutes) and their rotating movement can help you get a deeper clean. Overall, they take over much of the hard work of brushing to make the experience more enjoyable.
You should be going into your dentist’s office every six months to get your professional dental cleaning. Routine preventive care at the dentist reduces your risk of developing dental disease and allows you to get early treatment for any issues. One easy way to not forget about scheduling your appointments is to book your next appointment as you’re leaving your last one.
