It doesn’t have to take a lot of time to improve your dental health. In fact, you can form new, good habits in as little as 10 seconds. The team at The Parkway Dentist in Fort Worth has six ways to add vital dental care to each day.
Find a better place for your toothbrush.
Look around. In 10 seconds you can probably find 5 places to set your toothbrush that will allow air drying. This can curb the growth of microorganisms that closed, moist environments tend to encourage.
Leave the floss on the counter.
If you want to create consistency, you need reminders. Deliberately setting out the floss will give you more commitment to use it. And if you see it, you’ll remember that commitment.
If you’re in 20 seconds already, might as well grab the fluoride rinse and wash away bits of food after flossing, and freshen your breath at the same time. 10 seconds is the minimum but 20 is twice as good.
Smile in the mirror.
Check out those chompers. Examine for 10 full seconds. Scrutinize gums for bleeding or tenderness, missed fragments of food, staining, or other concerns.
Have a water chaser with dark beverages.
Rinse your mouth with a sip of water when drinking cola, tea, or coffee throughout the day. A mere 10 seconds that will inhibit discoloration.
