A reminder from the team at Harris Dental in Phoenix: when life gets busy (it always does) and you suddenly have to juggle extra balls, some are bound to get dropped. Maybe you took on a second job or started night school to earn an advanced degree, or became the caregiver for an ailing parent.
Not every stressor is negative. A new baby, marriage, career, or move can be exciting but overwhelming. It’s okay – and sometimes helpful – to drop some of the balls. You can probably let another parent take over room mother duties for a few weeks, forego a haircut, or skip poker night until things calm down.
When life hands you extra challenges it is easy to get lax about oral hygiene. Sometimes you feel too exhausted to brush or floss and skip regular check-ups and cleanings. Harris Dental wants to remind you to consider the possible consequences of neglecting your smile.
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Tooth and gum pain
- Bad breath
- Tooth loss
Your plate is already full – you don’t want to add poor dental health, and the expense of treating advanced problems, into the mix.
Let the car go unwashed for a few weeks. Record your favorite show to watch it later when things slow down. Postpone that kitchen remodel. But keep your smile healthy – it really will make your life easier, healthier, and happier.
