It can be quite tough to deal with not-so-ideal results when you really have been putting effort into your dental care. What’s going wrong, you might think to yourself? You clean your teeth every day, so shouldn’t you have exceptional dental health? Well, the problem is that “cleaning your teeth” and actually following through on the short- and long-term details that make up excellent smile protection are two different things. Allow our Celina, TX team to remind you of obstacles you may not realize are standing in the way!
Your Teeth Have Tartar Buildup
You are brushing like we suggest. You are flossing, too! However, your teeth just never feel completely clean. Then, you end up developing a cavity. Maybe you have bad breath, too. What’s going on, you ask? Well, we will be happy to review and explain this with you during a visit but in most cases, you are probably not coming in frequently enough for dental cleanings. This means that instead of just developing traces of tartar, you’re developing a lot of it. You follow through on dental care with dental hygiene but, since home care cannot remove tartar, you’re only getting so far. See us more often for easy, effective care!
You’re Being Too Aggressive
If you’re not careful about your dental care, did you know that instead of protecting your smile you can actually end up damaging it? It’s true. Unfortunately, patients frequently think that trying harder means pressing harder. This isn’t right. Trying harder means learning to be slow and steady, to take the time and steps required, and to practice very gentle care. Overly rushed and aggressive care can yield damaged tissues, missed plaque, and the development of oral health problems!
You’re Only Partially Committing To Care
You might think that as long as you participate in some level of dental care that this counts. However, it’s important to remember that you cannot trick your smile. You’re either keeping it very clean and, as a result, very healthy … or you’re not. So, commit fully to each and every step required for smile care and you will see the results you want.
