Smile Health: 3 Things To Stop Assuming

You may be making some serious assumptions about your smile health. While they might give you some relief, you might not realize that what you’re doing is setting yourself up for failure when you could be very easily setting yourself up for success! We strongly suggest you think about some of the ways patients often convince themselves of things that end up sabotaging their dental care. Fortunately, with just a little helpful knowledge, you’ll be headed in the right direction!

#1: That You’re Immune To Problems

Even if you have enjoyed an immaculate bill of smile health throughout your entire life up until this point, it does not mean you are magically just someone who cannot ever end up with oral health problems! Don’t let it go to your head. Instead, keep your smile safe by continuing your good habits and you will likely continue to see success.

#2: That You’re Too Old For Something

If you ever find yourself thinking that you’re too old for something (or that it’s too late for something) in regard to your smile health, remember that you are most likely incorrect! No matter your age or how long it has been, dental care is here to help even for very serious concerns.

#3: That You’re Performing Perfect Dental Hygiene

When you come in to see us and tell us that you’re caring for your smile but it doesn’t seem to be leading you toward the successful results you expect, do yourself a favor: Be open to helpful criticism! We know that you are likely doing your best. However, when you take a suggestion or two to heart, you may find that very simple changes will help you perform exceptional and very effective care!
