The Positive Results of a Preventive Dentistry Attitude-Adjustment
Attitude can make or break you. Those who study human nature understand the impact that your attitude can have on your quality of life.
The same applies to your health including your dental health.
Good attitudes produce healthy outcomes. A bad attitude or no attitude at all can put your health at risk.
Now’s a good time to evaluate your attitude about preventive dentistry. Consider it an attitude-adjustment of sorts.
Taking responsibility for your dental health starts with a preventive mindset. The risk of tooth decay, dental cavities, gingivitis, periodontal disease, and costly dental treatment increases with a decrease in responsibility.
Two attitudes that improve your oral health
1-Take charge of your at-home dental routine
Start with brushing and flossing (yes, this is a vital habit in spite of what you might have heard). A back-to-basics attitude will protect your teeth and gums.
Oral bacteria is a consistent threat to your dental health. If you don’t take charge with basic dental hygiene bacteria will.
Plaque and tartar build-up are the result of bacterial growth. Once it hardens, it’s more difficult to dislodge above and below your gum line.
Stay with the basics: your toothbrush and dental floss.
2-Trust the professionals
Support your routine at-home care with routine, scheduled, in-office appointments. A leave-it-to-the-professionals attitude that includes a dental examination and teeth cleaning is another essential preventive dentistry priority.
