Smile Protection: What’s Missing From Your Setup?

What’s your experience usually like when you make your way toward your sink? Are you ready for your dental hygiene experience? Does this feel like you’re simply operating on autopilot because you’ve nearly gotten it all down to a science? Or, would you say that sometimes you’re underprepared, sometimes you can’t find your toothbrush, and other issues make brushing and flossing something that causes you some stress? Good news: We can help you clean up your setup for your best experience every single time.

A Primary Set Of Dedicated Products

Your home dental care setup should absolutely contain a set of dedicated dental hygiene products that you keep in your bathroom and that you don’t bring to work with you, etc. This will ensure that every time you step into the bathroom to brush or floss, you are never met with the absence of one key item, such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, or dental floss. If you need to carry products to work or class with you, pull together an additional set for this purpose!

Extra Dental Products

Now, just because you’ve got your dedicated set of dental hygiene products sitting there, ready for your use, does not mean that you won’t accidentally drop your toothbrush in an area of your bathroom that renders it too contaminated for you to use (even if you try to clean it). Have backups on hand as a “just in case” measure.

Hand Soap

Keep soap at your sink, so you can suds up those fingers before you brush or floss or anything else! As a result, you won’t be transferring bacteria, viruses, etc. into your mouth during dental hygiene time!
