Generally speaking, in the world of providing yourself with effective dental care, one of the things you’ll want to learn ASAP is that taking it easy can be to your benefit. Of course, we don’t suggest taking a gentle approach in terms of your dedication to your oral health or to scheduling your visits with us! However, when we’re focused on the way that you’re treating yourself or your teeth and gums, that’s when our Riverside, CA team starts suggesting a gentle approach. Not entirely certain about how this may apply but you’re ready and listening? Wonderful! Your Riverside dentist is ready with some recommendations to take to heart.

#1: Be Kind To Yourself As You Learn New Habits

As you pick up and start to develop new oral health related habits, your Riverside dentist reminds you that it’s important to be gentle with yourself and very kind. At first, it may feel awkward to begin flossing as we suggest, for example. You may have made changes to the product, your approach, etc. Rather than be hard on yourself, give yourself time and space to learn. It makes the process more enjoyable (and more likely to stick!).

#2: When You Practice Any Home Smile Care

When you’re brushing, flossing, or doing anything else in the name of smile care, your Riverside dentist reminds you to take it easy. Any roughness, aggressive motions, pressure, or even rushing can lead to aggravated or damaged tissues. Feel like you need some help with this? We’ll be happy to offer advice during a checkup!

#3: When You’re Stepping Through A Long-Term Care Plan

Maybe you have some work you need completed, such as dental crowns and fillings, or even tooth replacement. If so, your Riverside dentist reminds you to take it easy as you move throughout your care plan, taking it step by step! Don’t feel rushed or pressured. Instead, keep your eye on the end goal and you’ll enjoy the process, as you head toward optimal oral health!
