Are you wondering if there’s something you should be doing to streamline your dental care with us? Is your goal with most services to discover the best way to become more efficient, saving time and money whenever you can? If so, we applaud you in your efforts! All it takes is becoming clear about the best option for approaching the care of your smile, while giving appropriate attention to the details. Don’t worry, we can help!
#1: Get (Very) Serious About Prevention
The best way to save money is to get very serious about prevention. Why? If you don’t practice preventive care, eventually, your teeth will suffer from decay or some form of avoidable damage. The cost to repair damage is always higher than what it costs to prevent it. So, if you want to save money and time spent in our chair, we encourage you to polish up your efforts by remembering to schedule your dental care with us as we recommend.
#2: Check Your Dental Hygiene Habits
You are going to want to check your hygiene-related dental care habits if you want to avoid spending extra time and money. If you do things correctly, you won’t go through more toothbrushes and toothpaste than is necessary (so, you will save time and money shopping). When you keep your smile clean through the proper approach, as well, you won’t waste your time with poor brushing and flossing. Here’s how to proceed:
- Use a new brush only once every four months or so
- Use only a pea-size blob of toothpaste when brushing (twice daily)
- Use 18 inches of floss each session (once daily)
- Brush for about two minutes each session
