Your Smile Care: 3 Times You Should Not Rush!

There are some instances within smile care during which we encourage you to rush. Need a dental filling and we have already told you that it’s the best solution for your oral health? Well then, the sooner you can receive that treatment the better! Haven’t been in for a checkup in many years? Seeing us ASAP is your best decision yet! However, there are other instances in which rushing can actually backfire and may be to your detriment. Let’s talk about when you should take your time and pace yourself, so you feel wonderful about your smile and the care that you receive from our Virginia Beach, VA practice.

#1: When You’re Practicing Dental Hygiene

When you’re practicing your smile care in the bathroom at home, you absolutely do not want to rush it. Just like creating a masterpiece takes time or cleaning your bathroom takes time, cleaning your smile takes time! There’s no way around it. When you rush, you miss things or you cause problems. If you’re too hard on your smile, you can cause eroded tissue and gum recession. If you’re too quick, you can miss plaque, tartar will form, and you’ll probably face decay, gum disease, and bad breath! Spend a full two minutes brushing and then, when you floss, be sure it’s thorough.

#2: When You’re Choosing Cosmetic Care

If you’re choosing cosmetic smile care for yourself, you don’t want to rush into it. Of course, you don’t need to drag your feet but it’s important you feel sure about what you’ve selected. If you find that you say, “Yes!” to any treatment we mention, it might be time to take a step back, consider the details, talk them over with us, and then move forward with your improvements.

#3: When You’re Selecting A Prosthetic

Are you ready to replace a missing tooth? Selecting a prosthetic is one area of smile that most certainly requires you to take lots of different things into consideration, so give yourself time. Think about the financial details, consider the amount of time it will take, ask yourself whether you want something fixed or removable, and so on and so forth.
