Do you end up with tired hands due to dental hygiene? Uncomfortable fingers? How about your arms? Do they become tired? Are you dealing with limitations that can turn your smile care into more of a taxing chore than a quick smile protection session? Remember that we are more than happy to help you make the most of your care at home, which includes making it easier on you physically. Start with some suggestions and seek additional advice from your Corona dentist during a visit.
Use An Electric Toothbrush
Switch from a manual toothbrush to an electric one as soon as you can, suggests your Corona dentist. This can make quite an impact regarding the ease of your care. The brush works for you. You just guide it along.
Use A Dental Floss Holder
Speak with us about options for flossing. We know that having to grip the floss, move the floss, and keep from dropping the floss as you press it between teeth can cause cramping and may prove challenging. We may suggest a dental floss holder for easier management of your floss. We may also discuss the benefits of other accessories, such as water flossers, to help rid your smile of debris with the ease of holding a wand that releases a stream of water, explains your Corona dentist.
Make Your Grip Easier
You may find that the very skinny handle of your toothbrush is what makes holding the brush and cleaning your smile difficult. Here are some easy fixes:
- Find a brush with a larger base
- Purchase a toothbrush gripper, which you may place over the brush handle, for much easier holding
