This message from Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville is about the stress we all face every day, and its impact on your dental health.
When you suddenly have to juggle extra balls, some are bound to get dropped. Maybe you are the caregiver for an ailing parent. Maybe you took on a second job, or started night school to earn an advanced degree.
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. doctor Freedom Village Dental dentist 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 oral health and the associated expense and inconvenience required to treat advanced issues.
Let the car go unwashed for a few weeks. Record your favorite show to watch later when things slow down. Postpone that kitchen remodel. But keep your smile healthy – it really will make your life easier, healthier, and happier.
