Want to get better at brushing your teeth two or three times a day? Below is a list of several ways that you can get better at keeping your teeth clean and healthy.
If you can’t get in the habit of a daily morning routine, setting an alarm to remind yourself when to brush your teeth can help you stay consistent. This can be especially useful if you are good at remembering to brush your teeth in the morning but not at night or vice versa. It can also be handy if you want to start brushing your teeth in the middle of the day but are having trouble finding a regular time.
If you are good at eating three regular meals a day, it shouldn’t be too hard to start a habit of brushing your teeth after each meal. Not only does this give you a guaranteed time to brush your teeth, it also makes sure you are brushing your teeth three times a day instead of just twice. And our Boise dentists recommend brushing after eating anyways to get rid of food that gets caught between teeth in addition to rinsing out any acidic or sugary foods that can speed up tooth decay.
Make it convenient to brush your teeth whenever you want by keeping a travel toothbrush in your briefcase or purse. Need something even more convenient? Disposable toothbrushes come with toothpaste already added. They are also individually packaged so you can open the toothbrush, brush your teeth, and toss it away with absolutely no fuss.
Hate how much work it takes to brush your teeth and still feel like they aren’t as clean as you’d like? Getting an electric toothbrush takes all the work out of brushing, and several electric brushes also have a timer that lets you know how long you should spend brushing. If you really want super clean teeth, a sonic electric toothbrush is pretty incredible.
