Dental Education: Spring Cleaning is Not Just for Your Home
April 1, 2019
Well now that it’s April, spring has sprung! Flowers are popping up and trees are showing their buds!
Many people take this as an opportunity for a fresh start, to clear away clutter that’s been plaguing them for the past year. But, “Spring Cleaning” is not just for your home! Spring is a wonderful time to look into an oral health overhaul!
Several things can lead to neglecting your oral health: laziness (yes, just admit it), lack of insurance or financial ability, apathy, schedules, and many other reasons. Now is the PERFECT time to get back on track!
What can you do for a fresh start:
Change your toothbrush or toothbrush head! This should typically be done every three months; if you’ve forgotten, now is the time!
Schedule your cleaning! If you’ve been putting it off, here is your reminder! Your dental office WANTS to see you and help you stay or get healthy!
Check expiration dates on mouthwashes or toothpastes…YES-they can expire! This expiration date will let you know when the components will lose their efficacy. In other words, the power of fluoride may be reduced, or the potassium nitrate that helps fight sensitivity to hot or cold may not be accomplishing the job it should.
Build a new routine! Do you forget to brush at night because you are too tired, too busy, or too lazy? Well, now is the time to develop that oral healthcare routine. Let’s build that brighter, healthier smile today.
Let’s SPRING into action and start this new season off right!
