What Seemingly Insignificant Details Are Holding Your Smile Back?

When you feel like you’re on track, you run through the details of oral health care and you don’t think you’ve left any boxes unticked on your essentials checklist, it can leave you feeling confused if your smile seems not-so-immaculate. Is there something you’re missing that’s leading to an occasional cavity, bad breath, or a smile that just seems less clean that it could? Many times, there are seemingly insignificant details (the type of thing you overlook because you’re convinced it’s quite minor) that have a negative impact. Find out what you might be missing and you can quickly tighten up your approach to smile care. Need help? Just call our Cleveland, TX team for a visit.

You’re Quick With Dental Hygiene

It’s great to be consistent and efficient with your dental hygiene as you work through brushing and flossing to protect your oral health. It is not, however, good to be quick about it. When you’re too fast (you’re not spending two minutes brushing or around at least a minute flossing), you’re not getting all of the plaque. When you leave plaque, it gets hard. Once it’s very hard (we call this tartar), it stays right where it is until we see you during your next cleaning. To keep your smile safe, we remind you to take your time, clean all surfaces the best that you can, and this attention to detail will pay off quite handsomely for you!

You’re Barely Lax With Professional Care

You might convince yourself that if you wait a few extra months for your cleaning and checkup, it’s no big deal for your oral health. Or, maybe you think the same thing regarding coming to see us for recommended restorative care treatments. Whatever the case, we remind you that when you stick to the details as far as the six-month mark is concerned for preventive care or the urgency we remind you of for restorations, you keep your smile safer. You give plaque buildup, tartar, and problems less time to flourish and leave their mark! Ready for a visit you need to set up? Call our team soon!
