Whether you’re usually at home or just now finding yourself at home due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to maintain healthy oral healthcare habits. We all know for some it’s easy to fall into a rut where we don’t keep our usual routine in the mornings because we know we aren’t leaving the house. Yet, this is an even more important time for our mouths to be pampered and cared for as we have access to food and drink at all hours of the day.
For those that want to make the best use of their time at home during April 2020, we say “Seize the toothbrush!”
How To Improve Your Oral Hygiene Without Going to the Dentist in April
While nothing beats the comfort of hearing from the dentist that your oral hygiene is up to par and that you should keep up your amazing dental hygiene you’ve got going at home, we’re going to try to give you the next best thing while we’re at home avoiding the coronavirus. Here are some tips we recommend to make your daily oral healthcare simple and easy to remember.
- Brush your teeth as soon as you wake up! That’s right, don’t wait and just knock out those 2 full minutes of teeth brushing first.
- Make your bed. This really makes a difference in how you start your day. By not skipping simple daily tasks like this you’ll better maintain the motivation and ability to remember to brush and floss at the right times.
- Get ready for the day.
- Work from home, take care of the kids, clean, organize, get out and be active.
- Floss after each meal. Whether you feel you have food stuck in your teeth or not, it’s there.
- Brush your teeth after dinner. Make it a family thing.
- Having a snack before bedtime? Go ahead and brush those teeth again.
