Working from home lets you relax in a lot of ways. You can sleep in a little more. You don’t have to rush to work. You don’t have to stress in traffic. You don’t have to worry about whether you look perfect. You have more time to work out in the morning and sit with your kiddos from breakfast. You can rush your morning teeth brushing.
Wait – that last one isn’t true! It might be easy to brush your teeth faster in the morning or skip your morning brushing altogether. No one can smell your breath in that video call, after all! But this is a habit that can lead to gum disease and cavities faster than you’d like.
Save yourself the time and money and spend it on what matters to you. Brush at least twice daily for at least two minutes, and floss to prevent tartar buildup.
No worries if you haven’t been super diligent, though. You’re not alone! And we can help. Be sure to come into Merry Dental, PC for your next checkup so we can shine your teeth and clean your gums. If we notice developing problems, we’ll recommend the least expensive, least invasive solution possible.
