Nope, we’re not necessarily advocating a lot of television watching. However, we might be suggesting that if you’re going to spend some time chilling out in front of the TV set like most people we know, you might want to make yourself feel a little bit better about it. Did you know that if you’re mindful about the details, you can actually make your TV watching work in favor of your oral health? Allow your Riverside dentist to share some of these light hearted thoughts!

#1: Commercial Breaks Are Dental Hygiene Breaks

If you want to feel a little bit better about watching TV, your Riverside dentist suggests you make good use of the commercial breaks (which happen to be very long these days). Instead of watching television until you’re very tired and crawl into bed without brushing, choose to use a break to brush your teeth and to floss. That way, you’re being productive and enjoying yourself. Don’t think you have time? Trust us. It only takes two minutes to complete a successful brushing session. You’ll probably have time to spare!

#2: You May Learn About New Products!

Your Riverside dentist also encourages you to pay closer attention to the ads when you’re not rushing to the bathroom to brush or floss. While you can’t trust everything you see on TV, you might end up discovering a new oral health product you’ve never heard of before. It can be fun to get excited about a new type of toothpaste that can liven up a dental hygiene routine that’s become a bit boring!
