Two Hints For When You’re Too Tired To Brush
- Posted on: Sep 27 2019
Too tired to touch a toothbrush. We’ve all been there. At Flax Dental in Atlanta, we are committed to helping patients maintain balanced hygiene and to correct imperfections that can lead to inhibited confidence and self-assurance.
In this blog post, we are offering two fabulously quick ideas for overcoming exhaustion in favor of brushing and flossing late at night.
Idea #1 Drag Tongue Along Teeth
After a long day as you are lying there in bed and realize you forgot to brush, drag your tongue over your teeth a few times while mentally reviewing how plaque forms. Within 48 hours it can start the dirty work of eating away at the teeth. Then jump up and give your mouth just two minutes of gentle, thorough cleaning. It’s that simple.
Idea #2 Scrutinize the Food You Eat
Another convenient and easy 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.
When it comes to good dental health, your toothbrush and dental floss are your best friends. Brush and floss at least twice a day. At Flax Denteal in Atlanta, we want all our patients to enjoy excellent dental health. Our services include restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!
