Do you find that you don’t have anything against dental care per se, but you don’t get very excited about it either? Perhaps since caring for your oral health is something that you know you need to do at home on a daily basis – and with our practice at least twice annually for checkups and cleanings – you’re wondering if there’s a way to cultivate a more positive perspective. As a matter of fact, there are a few things you can do to start loving dental care just a little bit more.
#1: Ask Questions
Start asking us questions. We often find that our patients show up for visit and the leave without asking a single question (while other patients come in with a long list of inquiries). If you feel there are some mysteries that go unanswered, you may become somewhat frustrated regarding your oral health. Begin bringing up your thoughts during checkups, so you can learn to feel proactive and excited about caring for your smile.
#2: Choose Things You Like
Maybe you’re using a toothpaste that has a flavor you don’t like very much – maybe the texture is all wrong. Perhaps you don’t like your toothbrush but you figure it cleans your teeth, so who cares? Actually, if you want to learn to love caring for your oral health, it’s very important you feel happy with the essential products. Start choosing new items and finding those that you truly enjoy using.
#3: Work On Organizational Habits
If you forget to schedule visits, you run out of toothpaste, and you get cavities because you forget to brush and floss, chances are good you don’t love the thought of dental care. Get a bit more organized, plan visits and your shopping lists in advance, and you just might find that caring for your oral health is easier than you thought!
