Too tired to touch a toothbrush? We’ve all been there. At Summer Dental in Las Vegas we are committed to helping patients maintain erxcellent dental health. In this blog post, we offer two great ideas for brushing and flossing, even when you’d rather just hit the hay.
Idea #1 Drag Tongue Along Teeth
After a long thankless day as you are lying there in bed and realize you forgot to brush, drag your tongue over your teeth a few times. Visualize how plaque and tartar erode the teeth. Then jump up and give your mouth just 2 minutes of gentle, thorough cleaning. It’s that easy.
Idea #2 Scrutinize the Food You Eat
Another convenient and uncomplicated approach is to pay attention to what’s going into your mouth throughout the day. The higher the sugar content the sooner the teeth will need a brushing to avoid harm. Swish with water after coffee, tea or soda if brushing isn’t going to happen soon. Chewing sticky candy leaves debris all over in the mouth as does bread and crackers. Keep this in mind and commit to take care of the particles as soon as possible.
We hope these tips are enough to get you to pick up your toothbrush. Don’t forget to floss! Between your home care and regular checkups at Summer Dental in Las Vegas, you’ll keep your teeth clean and happy. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
