Why Rushing Your Dental Care Can Backfire! 

August 22, 2019

When you brush and you rush, things can go a bit haywire! The same thing is true about rushing through your flossing sessions and even when you become rushed in terms of the professional dental care you receive from our Lake Orion, MI practice! With that said, you may wonder: Why is it such a big deal and what can you do to slow things down and enjoy a much more reasonable pace with caring for your teeth and gums? Good news: We’ve got all of the information you could possibly need!

It Makes You Feel Frantic About Your Smile Care

When you consistently put off your dental hygiene sessions or fly through them, you may often feel like there’s no time. Or, you may feel like your smile care is actually getting in the way of your life! This isn’t ideal, since you really do need to brush twice every day (and floss once every day) for life in order to maintain a very healthy smile. So, what can be done about this? From our perspective, the smartest way to handle rushing is to simply stop. Figure out how to give yourself about five minutes in the morning and again in the evening, so you may enjoy a leisurely experience with your dental care without feeling pressed for time. Remember, it takes only two minutes for effective brushing, so you need just a tiny window dedicated to your grin.

It Causes You To Miss Plaque And Debris

Plain and simple, when you rush as you brush and floss, you miss plaque and debris, which will promote problems like decay and gingivitis! Slow your dental care for better attention to detail.

It Leads To Scheduling Frustration

Remember that rushing is often associated with procrastination. When you wait until the day that you should probably be receiving your next dental checkup and cleaning, only to realize you never scheduled the visit, you feel rushed. You call and hope to be able to quickly squeeze in a visit to see our team for your preventive dental care. You have to quickly move your daily schedule around to accommodate the date and time you lock in. Instead of enjoying the experience and have an easy time, your dental care feels rushed and can this can make it something you feel negatively about. Instead, we encourage you to set up visits well in advance, so you don’t feel pressed for time or rushed and, instead, can feel like care is just another easy part of your life!
