Your dedication and sacrifice are a large part of what makes you a good mother. However, many things, including your oral health, can suffer when you get out of balance.
Mom’s are amazing people. They work round the clock to keep their family happy and safe. Even a working mom still manages her job, her house, and everything in between. But busy moms often focus entirely on their family’s health and wellbeing, neglecting their own.
If you are a mom, you likely understand this predicament. Your dedication and sacrifice are a large part of what makes you a good mother. However, many things, including your oral health, can suffer when you get out of balance.
How to Maintain Balance
Balance is key to keeping our lives in order. When we get out of balance, many things can suffer. As a busy mom, you may not stop to contemplate how important your oral health care is. But consider the fact that neglecting your teeth can lead to treatments that cost much more money than regular preventative dental care. So, how can you maintain balance and ensure that your oral health is not adversely affected?
- Practice good oral hygiene – brush at least twice a day and floss daily.
- Use fluoride toothpaste and drink fluoridated water.
- Schedule dental cleanings twice a year.
- Do not smoke or use tobacco products.
- Limit alcoholic drinks.
- Maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
- If you notice a problem with your mouth or teeth, get to the dentist immediately.
As a mom, you are likely doing these things for your kids but do not fail to do these things for yourself! By taking care of yourself and your family, you will be more balanced and experience positive results.
