Taking good care of your teeth is important. But taking care of your teeth can also begin to feel like a chore, so maybe it’s time to make it something special. Let’s talk about how to create a spa day for your teeth.
New Flavors and Fragrances
One of the easiest ways to treat yourself and create a spa day for your teeth is to try out some new dental products! Toothpastes, mouthwashes, and even floss now come in a wonderful variety of flavors and scents to delight and enliven the senses. What are you waiting for? Get adventurous and try something new!
A New Toothbrush
Another great way to make your dental routine more spa-like is by using an electric toothbrush. Electric toothbrushes are like a massage for your gums, increasing circulation and saliva production to promote good dental health. Electric toothbrushes have also been shown to clean teeth better than manual toothbrushes. With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why electric toothbrushes have become so popular.
A waterpik flosser is a special tool that uses a pressurized stream of water, similar to the tool your dental hygienist uses during a professional dental cleaning, to gently clean between your teeth and along your gum line. If your gums are in need of some extra care, this is a great addition to your dental care toolbox.
Set the Scene
Your teeth and gums are important because a healthy smile is important! Not only can a smile encourage a friend or make a good first impression, but studies have shown that smiling more boosts your mood and self-confidence. That’s why we believe your smile deserves all the TLC you can give it.
Creating a spa day for your teeth can be as simple as setting aside some dedicated time for self-care and incorporating your dental care routine. Light a few scented candles or start the essential oil diffuser to begin with a calming atmosphere. While you’re waiting for a face mask to sink in, why not apply some whitening strips to your teeth? After practicing some yoga stretches and meditation, brushing your teeth with your electric toothbrush can help your jaw and mouth to feel massaged and relaxed.
Treating your smile with the care it deserves so that it feels and looks its best is sure to improve not only your dental health but your day as well.
