Have you ever wondered why your intentions for a streamlined, straightforward dental hygiene session can become derailed? The good news is that you’re not the only person in the world who has ever become distracted during brushing or flossing. However, when you’re not on track and enjoying a daily rhythm, your preventive care may begin to waver. Let’s cover a few things to ban from the bathroom to help out your efforts.
#1: Your Cell Phone
Unless you’re using it to time yourself to brush your teeth, it’s a good idea to keep your cell phone (or tablet or otherwise) out of the bathroom when you are performing your dental hygiene session. Otherwise, you may be tempted to check your email accounts, hop onto social media, or other things that can wait until you are done brushing your teeth and flossing.
#2: Old Toothbrushes
Have you just opened up a new toothbrush, choosing to abide by our suggestions to replace your brush every three months for the most effective dental hygiene? If so, we suggest throwing your old brush away. Particularly for those who purchase the same style brush over and over, it can become easy to confuse the fresh brush with the old one.
#3: “Bad” Hygiene Products
Were you previously using abrasive toothpaste before we let you know it’s not good for your smile? If so, don’t keep stuff around that you may have once relied on. Out of sight, out of mind – by tossing out products that aren’t good for your dental hygiene, you will stick to the correct products.
