Spring Clean Your Dental Routine: Easy Tips!

Is your dental routine its best? Do you feel like your bathroom is tidy and it’s ready to go at a moment’s notice, when you are ready to brush and floss your smile? Or, do you tend to wade through a pile of different toothpastes, never sure which is the most current, you’re not sure about how old your toothbrush is, and your general home dental care could use a quick spring cleaning? If it’s the “it need a cleanout” option, then our Cleveland, TX reminds you that we are still enjoying the spring season! Apply spring cleaning to your smile care and you’ll be so pleased with the results. Consider tips!

Tip: Throw Out Expired Items

We remind you that when you’re not sure what’s new and what’s old, it can add time to your dental hygiene routine (or you could end up using something that isn’t very effective). Give your bathroom a quick spring cleaning by beginning with the removal of any and all items that have passed their expiration date! Easy.

Tip: Replace Your Old Brush

If you’re not too thrilled with the idea of ending up with cavities, then we remind you that though your toothbrush may not be printed with an expiration date, there’s a general rule of thumb that comes with this part of your home dental care: You should be replacing your toothbrush every three to four months, so you can be sure you’re using something that actually cleans your smile and helps you avoid oral health problems like decay.

Tip: Replenish Out-Of-Stock Stuff

Take a look through your collection of dental care items. In addition to removing those things you no longer use or that are expired, also take a moment to identify any holes! What’s missing? Are you out of dental floss or something else? Create a list and pick up anything you’re out of, so you’re on track with daily care.

Tip: Purchase Back-Up Items

If one of the things that drives you a little bit crazy about your dental care at home is running out of items like toothpaste, dental floss, etc., then take this time to purchase back-up items, so you never end up running out completely. When you’re low, you can pull out a back-up and then pick up what you need more of during your next shopping trip.

Tip: Schedule Your Next Visit!

Don’t forget to schedule your next visit, too, before spring ends!
