Like just about anything else you do every single day, sometimes, dental hygiene can become boring. You can find that you just feel tired of doing it. However, you know that it’s one of those very important things you do for yourself because it keeps your smile healthy, so you find yourself at a crossroads. Should you just give up? Or, do you trudge along as you worry that you’ll begin feeling resentful? Good news: Neither! Instead, our Riverside, CA team is here to help. When you make some little changes (as suggested by your Riverside dentist), you’ll find you can turn brushing and flossing into a part of your day that you actually look forward to experiencing!

Change Up The Flavors

We know just as well as you do that you can enjoy a particular mouth wash or toothpaste for years and think it’s absolutely the best only to wake up one morning and think, “Hmm, I don’t really like this that much anymore.” Whether you’re wonder what else is out there in terms of the flavor or you’re just completely over it, we remind you: There are so many options. Head to the drugstore. Browse online. Try flavors out until you find a new favorite. There are enough options for you to cycle through them from one favorite to the next, if necessary! Just remember to enjoy the experience.

Try Something New

Tired of brushing? Why not switch to an electric toothbrush? Sick of flossing? Add a water flosser into your routine or try a new texture and flavor of floss. When you shake things up, it adds some variety to your experience, explains your Riverside dentist.

Add Outside Entertainment

What’s missing from your dental hygiene experience? Is it just so quiet in the bathroom as you’re brushing? Do you wish something could offer you just a little bit of distraction but not so much that you lose track of your care? Your Riverside dentist reminds you that it’s so easy to set up a podcast and listen to it, to listen to your favorite song, to watch two minutes of a show or movie, etc. Whatever it is that helps you feel like you’re getting your smile clean and having a nice break in the meantime, try it! It’s worth the effort.
