It’s not that I’m lazy exactly, but life can just get so busy. Inevitably my routine that suffers the most is my oral health care. Not that I skip it, but I would totally cut corners way too often. And after 3 cavity fillings and 3 wisdom teeth removals just this year…I was ready to change my routine for the better! So today I’m going to be sharing the 3 tips that I’ve started incorporating. Think of it as a lazy girls guide to a better health care routine!
The past two years I’ve been pretty terrible in the way of oral health care. I was pretty good before I became pregnant — I wouldn’t floss every day…but several times a week at least. But then came morning sickness. And just getting food into my mouth was a struggle, let alone a toothbrush. *GAG* To help combat the morning sickness (that I had pretty much throughout the entire 9 months) I munched on ice. It helped to numb my taste buds and, curiously, sooth my stomach.
But. As I found out a few months after having Olivia. Ice can be really bad for your teeth. Like, really bad. I had two of my teeth chip off because of this. *insert horror emoji*
As you can imagine, ever since I got my teeth all straightened out and fixed…I take my oral health care routine a LOT more seriously! But because I am so busy juggling being a wife, mom, and blogger…I needed help. Which is when I discovered these life-changing tips! 😉
3 Tips for a Better Oral Health Care Routine
1. Ditch the Traditional Floss
This one is very simple, but it made such a HUGE difference in my oral health care routine I had to share it. Flossing is always the step I forget…or purposely skip because it takes too much effort. You can find these Flossiers just about anywhere. I put them in this clear acrylic container that I have on my bathroom vanity — so that I can see it every night when I am getting ready for bed. Now instead of grabbing out the floss from my drawer, pulling out a foot or so, and winding it around my fingers I just need to grab one of these and get started. 🙂
2. Upgrade Your Mouthwash
I don’t know about you, but for me when I can SEE the products I am a lot better at using them. (i.e. that silver tray in the background has all my daily skincare products. 🙂 ) But a big, ugly mouthwash container isn’t exactly the prettiest thing to display on your counter. Or to advertise to guests, “look who has bad breath!” 😛 With that in mind I found this mouthwash dispenser at my local Bed, Bath, and Beyond and thought it was perfect.
The sleek steel packaging goes along perfectly with the decorations in my bathroom. And this particular mouthwash container dispenses the perfect amount of mouthwash into the (reusable and washable) cup. No more wasting any! Now this sits right beside my toothbrush so that I never forget to use it.
3. Bring Technology to Your Toothbrush
The NEW Philips Sonicare FlexCare Connected toothbrush is a thing of beauty — it’s innovative and revolutionary and it is THE brush every lazy (or busy) girl needs to own! With the help of the free Philips Sonicare app it’ll tell you any areas that you missed, didn’t spend long enough on, or if you’re using too much pressure or motion while you brush. How awesome is that?!
Here are a few snapshots of me setting up the app. All you have to do is open it when you are brushing and it’ll help you get the best clean possible every time. I’ve already noticed a difference! I’ve always brushed for the right amount of time, but since getting this toothbrush I’ve noticed that I favor cleaning one side of my mouth more than the other.
I found the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Connected toothbrush at my local Bed, Bath, and Beyond (pictured below) for $199. It IS pricey but when I think of how much money I’ve spent on cavity fillings just this year…it’s worth the investment!
The aspect that the “lazy girl” in my loves about this toothbrush is that it takes the guesswork out of my oral health care. You can input goals (like flossing daily, using mouthwash, etc) and it’ll keep track as you achieve your goals. The next time I get my teeth cleaned…I’m going to ACE IT! 😀
What’s YOUR biggest tip to improving your oral health care? I’d love to know what you like today. This girl can use all the help she can get! 😛
