If you work from home, you know there are pros and cons. One pro that we’ve heard from our patients is that they have more time without a commute to get things done at home, particularly in the mornings. Some people say they like to wear their lounge clothes and cut back time getting ready. In some cases, though, oral hygiene can become a second thought, at least in the morning. Not brushing your teeth in the morning or doing a really fast job can lead to cavities and other problems.
No one can see you at home or smell your breath, so this is an easy way to save time. In the long run, though, you will spend more time – and money – at the dentist fixing tooth decay that has formed.
Use an electric toothbrush with a timer or an app if you have trouble making sure you brush your teeth for at least two minutes. Brush at least twice a day, floss daily, and come in for your cleaning and exam in Visalia. We’ll check for issues thoroughly to stay ahead of them, recommend the most conservative treatment if needed, and get your teeth shining.
