Brushing Does Not Have to Feel Like a Chore
Posted on 3/15/2018 by Alexandria Schwei
Brushing your teeth should not be something you feel forced to do. It should be an energizing part of your day. It is a proactive step towards keeping your entire body, and more specifically your mouth, as healthy as possible.
If you dread doing it, then you need to figure out ways of making it more fun. It may never feel as though it is something you run to do with excitement, but it should be seen as a great opportunity that you get to have each day.
Perspective Can Make Brushing Easier
The perspective you have over your brushing can make a difference in if it feels like a chore or not. Right now, you have the opportunity to take care of your teeth. If you do not take care of them, you will have no teeth left to take care of.
Would you wish you had taken the opportunity to take care of them better now? Maybe that perspective can help you see it differently.
A change of habit can also make brushing a bit more fun. Something as simple as getting a new tool to brush with can help. Go from a traditional toothbrush to a powered one. Try out a water or air flosser instead of using traditional floss. Find something that makes you want to brush. When you want to brush, you do a better job.
Do not look at brushing as a job you would much rather ignore. See it as today's opportunity to maintain your health for the future. Reach out to us for help if you see brushing as a chore. We can help you see the benefits of brushing now, and also explain to you the damage that comes with waiting or not brushing the way you should.
