Life is hectic for many Fishers residents. At times, it’s impossible to get all the “gotta do’s” done and many are delayed or dropped altogether. The team at Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS wants to remind you to keep your dental health on the important to-do list.
Many important things get put on the back burner, but please don’t make your dental health one of them.
Here are some common dental care shortcuts. Are you guilty of any of them?
RUSHING THROUGH BRUSHING
Your teeth deserve a careful two minutes or more. Slow and methodical beats quick and dirty. Use a system to make sure you get every tooth. Playing one of your favorite two- or three-minute songs may help you go the distance.
ONLY SEEING YOUR DENTIST WHEN YOU FEEL A TOOTHACHE
We hope none of our patients put off evaluations and cleanings. When you feel tooth pain, it may be way too late to prevent a filling or even a root canal.
Neglecting Professional Cleanings
When softer plaque turns to calculus, you can’t brush it away with a toothbrush. Six-month cleanings help get rid of the calculus or tartar before it can impair your enamel or irritate your gums.
