Nobody likes learning that they have a cavity (or 2 or 3). But only the extremely lucky seem to make it through exams without ever turning up some decay. How can you join that special group? Changing a few of your home habits could make a significant difference.
When was the last time you checked in with your oral health? We’re all guilty of making our smiles less than top priority from time to time. But reconsidering how you treat your teeth each day could open up opportunities for positive changes. If you can avoid cavities, you also avoid the dental drill, expensive treatment, and the discomfort that can accompany decay. Start your new approach to home care with our infographic below – and keep scrolling for next steps.
Give Your Teeth What They Need to Avoid Tooth Decay
Becoming an Anti-Cavity Expert
Everyone’s teeth are different. What benefits yours is probably different from what works for a friend or family member. This is why it’s so crucial that you pay attention to what your teeth are telling you – and react. Your dentist and hygienist can help you take the right steps that will yield positive results for your own teeth.
In addition to the tips above, make sure you do the following:
- Get dental products (toothpaste, toothbrush, floss) that you enjoy using
- Remind yourself to stay on top of your oral hygiene, especially if you don’t typically floss
- Keep at it – these new tactics are only going to make a difference if you stay consistent
- …and get in touch with Hinsdale Dentistry if you have any questions!
