Smile Sabotage: Are You Guilty?

You may be taking some actions (or not quite finishing them) that are leading to smile sabotage! What’s that mean? Well, it means that you may have yourself convinced that you’re doing an upstanding, even superior job with your oral health care but there are some little issues you’re overlooking. The result? In the end, you’ll discover that you’re not really performing stellar care when you develop dental health problems. Fortunately, by shedding light on common areas of deficiency, you can get your care up to snuff and truly protect your grin.

You Don’t Get Through All Dental Hygiene Details

If you’re getting through your dental hygiene sessions without missing even the tiniest of details, then you’re on track. If you’re missing a single detail, this could be sabotaging your oral health without you even realizing it! Now, before you start worrying that there are 1 million details to contend with, the process is really very easy. Remember the following and you’re in good shape:

  • Brush for periods of two minutes
  • Your two-minute brushing sessions must happen in the morning and again at night (performing just one will not yield best results)
  • Floss your smile (between all teeth and behind your very back teeth)
  • Care for your smile gently

You Feel Like Your Good Intentions Will Suffice

You might think to yourself that you have very good intentions regarding your smile care. Unfortunately, the only thing your oral health will benefit from is actual action. Yes, you may think to yourself that tomorrow you will begin following everything you need to do to protect teeth and gums. However, until you start doing so, your smile may not fare so well in the meantime.
