If you think we are going to scold you just like everyone else (including yourself) seems to when it comes to your daily tech habits, think again. While we can agree that gluing your face to your tablet or smartphone all day can certainly bring with it some serious consequences (like missing out on the world around you), this advanced technology also offers some extraordinary benefits. Ready for some not-so-black-and-white advice from your Corona dentist? Let’s dig a bit deeper regarding this ongoing technology discussion.

Why You Should Put Your Tech Stuff Down

You might want to put your tablet or phone down when it’s getting in the way of what you need to accomplish. For instance, your Corona dentist suggests you do your best to perform your dental hygiene without interruption. This means that while you brush and floss, you shouldn’t also be shampooing your hair (if you brush in the shower), you shouldn’t be talking (perhaps you like to Skype quite frequently), and you shouldn’t be posting on social media. If it’s distracting you from brushing for two minutes straight, put it down.

Why You Might Want To Pick It Up

Sometimes, it’s a good idea to pick up your tablet or phone to help your oral health remain in wonderful shape. For instance, your Corona dentist recommends thinking about the ways your technology can help you (albeit, not necessarily while you’re right in the middle of brushing or flossing). Consider some helpful ideas:

  • Write down your upcoming appointment on your phone or tablet calendar
  • Set your device’s timer if you need help brushing for two full minutes
  • Bring along your phone or mp3 player to your visits, so you can listen to a relaxing playlist
