Why not just avoid smile care blunders, you may wonder to yourself? Well. There are those things you can completely avoid and then those things that happen on accident. When it’s something you can’t do much to prevent, the second best thing is to make sure you’re prepared just in case! No worries, there aren’t any super hidden dental care dangers lurking around the corner. However, there are certainly some potential unforeseen and frustrating obstacles that may present themselves. Fortunately, your Temecula dentist can ensure you’re ready for anything that comes your way, so your oral health remains safe!

Dropping Your Toothbrush

Your Temecula dentist reminds you that even with the most graceful of movements, you are still likely to drop your toothbrush from time to time. Unfortunately, when you drop it between the sink and the wall, into the toilet bowl, or anywhere else that isn’t exactly in pristine condition, the best plan is to simply throw it out and start fresh! Avoid finding yourself without a toothbrush by keeping an extra one around as a just-in-case.

Forgetting Your Dental Appointment

Not so great at keeping up with important dates and times? Save yourself the trauma and upset of missing a dental appointment. Instead, your Temecula dentist suggests you set reminders for yourself in whatever form works (on your calendar, sticky notes, your phone, etc.).

Leaving Your Treatment At Home

Don’t leave your stuff behind when you need it! Write a list and check it two or three times as you head out the door to ensure you always have whatever you need for your smile with you (this is particularly important during travel).
