Things You Don’t Have To Switch Up (But Might Want To)

If you’re enjoying your dental care experience right now and things are going A-OK, then you may not really be in need of any serious advice. However, if you’re doing pretty okay but there are some areas of your smile protection experience with which you are experiencing a bit of a challenge, our Overland Park, KS team reminds you: Sometimes, by switching things up with your approach (even in a small way), you can often enjoy serious improvement that makes things much better! Consider some possibilities and you may find that caring for your grin becomes even easier!

Switching To An Electric Toothbrush

Does anyone ever really have to switch to an electric toothbrush for their dental care to work? The answer is no. However, you might want to consider switching from your manual brush to a powered one if you’re having any sort of problem getting your smile nice and clean. Here are some reasons to make the change:

  • Your arms and hands are tired or in pain and a break would be extremely beneficial
  • You aren’t able to get your smile as free of plaque and food particles as you would like, so you would like the increase in strokes-per-second offered by a powered brush
  • You’re having trouble practicing gentle care, which is easier with an electric toothbrush

Switching Your Flossing Time

As you probably already know, we suggest that you floss your smile once daily, which means you can floss it in the morning or in the evening. While you may be quite used to flossing during one time or the other, it may be time to ask yourself if the choice you’ve been making for some time now is working for you. Maybe you feel rushed in the morning. If so, floss at night instead. Perhaps you’re exhausted at night but have more energy as you begin your day. If so, floss in the morning. Remember that this simple dental care switch can offer some serious benefits for your experience.

Switching To A New Checkup-And-Cleaning Schedule
