You may wonder to yourself if there’s something you could do to make your dental care easier. Can you just brush once a day and floss (Hint: No, this is not going to work)? Can you find some other method of approaching your dental hygiene that you’ve never thought of before (Hint: Nope, you’re going to need to stick to the clinically proven method of care)? Fortunately, your Temecula dentist has a way of considering the guidelines for effective care that makes keeping up with every last factor extremely easy. Let’s get started on that breakdown!

Plan For Six Months

Planning your comprehensive dental care ahead of time is fantastic! However, you might not know where to begin or how much time to account for. Your Temecula dentist suggests planning six months out, since we need to see you once every six months for your dental care visits. Here’s what to do:

  • Purchase two toothbrushes (you’ll use a new one every three months)
  • Purchase enough toothpaste and floss for six months
  • Call us at the beginning of the six months to schedule your visit ahead of time

Keep Track Of Daily Habits

Your Temecula dentist suggests that you consider what your daily dental hygiene is going to look like (as well as your care when you’re away from home). To keep everything tidy and efficient, think about things in the following way:

  • Daily Care: Brushing (2x for 2 minutes). Flossing (1x for 1-2 minutes).
  • Away-From-Home Daily Care: Are you heading to work or school? Bring sugarless gum and water with you, which will allow you to clean your smile after you eat.
  • Travel Care: Plan ahead. Remember your brush, your toothpaste, and your dental floss. Your daily care will always apply, so continue as usual.
