Don’t Let Being Busy Interfere with Your Dental Habits
Mouth Mate is an extremely versatile tool that is designed to promote oral hygiene – especially in our “busy” lives. The majority of people you encounter on a daily basis are “in a rush.” We are busy at work, busy with school, busy going to practice, busy making dinner, busy looking for the next best thing, the list goes on. Therefore, this lifestyle has translated directly to oral hygiene and, newsflash, we are not taking the proper amount of time to brush our teeth and promote good dental hygiene!
The daily exercise of brushing your teeth is something so intuitive, something you have been doing your whole life, YET, you are probably not doing it the right way. Furthermore, this leads to dental problems you are seeing today or problems you will see down the road. We want to prevent that and stay ahead of issues!
See More of Your Mouth for Better Brushing
Look in the mirror and open your mouth. Chances are, you can’t completely see your molars. Mouth-Mate functions as an at home retraction tool that can be utilized for better visibility in those hard to reach areas that don’t receive as much brushing as they probably should. Therefore, it is time to take a step back and start to devote 30 more seconds for yourself by really focusing and brushing your teeth properly. From the ADA, you should be taking 2 minutes per day! Try timing yourself to see if you are nearly close to that.
Put down the phone! Oftentimes, people are looking at their phone and mindlessly brushing their teeth. This can develop into a terrible habit of not truly reaching all of those vulnerable areas. Due to rushing, the focus is just not there these days. Take a deep breath and look in the mirror, where you are brushing. If you make sure to reach each tooth and properly brush, then you can avoid more serious issues down the road. If you are looking for a good toothbrush, we love Tepe Interdental Brushes and OralB’s Genius brush.
We hope to have made you more self-aware when brushing to assure that you are truly taking care of your dental health! You can do it!
