If you are doing your best but your best doesn’t seem to be getting you to the desired finish line (a healthy smile, of course), you might be finding yourself dealing with mounting frustration. Before you allow yourself to become too upset, we encourage you to take a deep breath, release it, and relax. Simple changes to your daily dental hygiene routine can yield huge improvements (don’t worry, they’re factors even the best brushers and flossers overlook from time to time).
Your Products Could Be Better
If you’re using products that aren’t very effective, you may end up with a lackluster dental hygiene session (but you might not realize it for a while). Do yourself a favor and make sure your arsenal is up to par:
- Your toothbrush should only consist of soft bristles, nothing medium or firm
- Your toothpaste should include fluoride but it should not include ingredients that can scrape your teeth
- Your floss is up to your choosing
You’re Missing A Hygiene Detail
Your dental hygiene routine is only going to provide you with a healthy smile if you make sure you are thorough. How to do this? Always remember to brush for two minutes two times a day and to floss once. Make sure each session includes comprehensive scrubbing of every surface of each tooth.

Saying, “yes” to our care means we help you prevent problems with cleanings, monitoring your smile, and by offering demonstrations and tips.
