For Better Brushing: 2 Conversations To Have

Did you ever think you’d be having one if not two conversations about your brushing and dental hygiene? If not, you’ll be pleased to learn that they’ll be quick and they are easy to accomplish. Even better? By occasionally doing so, you can feel confident with the knowledge that you’re brushing effectively, so your smile health continues to do very well!

Conversation #1: Talk To Yourself

No, you don’t literally have to stand in front of the mirror and talk to your reflection. However, if you want to ensure your brushing is as good as it can be, it’s important to check in with one’s self every now and then. Spend a moment honestly reflecting about the following and if you need to make changes, do so:

  • Ask yourself if you brush for a full two minutes during dental hygiene sessions. If not, start using a timer.
  • Ask yourself if you’re brushing all tooth surfaces. If not, begin immediately!
  • Ask yourself whether you like your products (try something new if not).
  • Ask yourself whether you’re replacing your brush every three to four months, which is essential.
  • Check in with yourself to ensure you brush twice a day.
