Even if you claim to care for your teeth and gums, you can’t avoid loopholes and if you don’t identify what these are you’ll be risking your oral health. Case in point – your daily habits. Yes, there are certain habits that may look harmless to you but are actually destroying your teeth and gums. You don’t notice them because the effects aren’t instantaneous but rather gradual. Two of the most common unhealthy dental habits that most of you are guilty of are brushing your teeth only in your home and deliberately avoiding your dentist Hollywood. Let’s find out more.
As much as possible take your toothbrush with you wherever you go like when you go to work. The reason is that plaque can build up fast and if you wait longer it will be more difficult to remove. So don’t leave your toothbrush at home. Always have a small pack for your toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss.
There are tons of reasons why people avoid their dentist. It could be because they are scared to find out if they have oral disease, unwilling to pay for dental fees, fear of pain or fear of the unknown. Whatever the reason why you keep avoiding your dentist it has to stop now. Don’t make a habit of canceling appointments because if you keep this up you’ll be putting yourself at risk of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. Plus, you will never know if you have an existing problem and if you do have one it will not get treated right away and it may get worse requiring more costly treatments.
