Ways of Setting a Good Dental Example for Those Around You
Posted on 10/15/2019 by Office
It can be extremely important to set a good example to those around you on how to practice good oral health habits. It may be just something as simple as your children watching you as they grow up to be in a position where many people look up to you and mimic your behavior. Whatever the case may be, it is always a good strategy to behave in a positive way to set a good example for others.
Ways to Set a Good Example at Home
Getting up each morning and having a routine of flossing and then beginning to brush your teeth is a great habit to start. Follow up your brushing by using mouthwash for a minimum of 30 seconds. This removes any bacteria that have formed overnight.
It's important to floss once a day, but also using tools available like an electric toothbrush. A floss pick which allows you to reach hard places and sticking with fluoride-based mouthwash shows how committed you are to oral care. Helping your children follow those examples will prepare them to have a healthy oral future.
Ways to Set a Good Example at Work
Make time during your busy schedule at work to visit your dental visits. Routine cleanings and checkups not only keep your oral health clear and safe, but it lets those around you know you're serious about keeping your mouth clean. Following lunches be sure to use some floss to remove any food in your teeth and follow that up with some sugarless gum.
Not only does sugarless gum protect your teeth from cavities it is also great at removing bacteria that can be deposited after you've eaten a meal. The best example that you can set while at work is a smile that is clean, straight, and white.
