Well now that we got all the skincare secrets out of the way, it’s time to talk chops! There was a long period of time where I didn’t go to the dentist and I paid for it in a big way. Crowns, a root canal, wisdom teeth out at 40, a slight infection in my jaw that took us two weeks to find. Iiiii think that might be everything? It was all 100% preventable and I only have myself to blame (I hate when that happens).
Needless to say, the health of my teeth and mouth have become very important to me over the last five years and so I thought I’d share the “secrets” I’ve discovered along the way. First and foremost, regular visits to a dentist you trust is priority number one. I had a laundry list of things to fix after my first visit and so we strategized on when and how that happened and chipped away at the list over the course of a couple years. I am incredibly grateful for the care I received.
I bought a Sonicare toothbrush and haven’t looked back. On the occasional evening where I brush with a regular toothbrush, my teeth just don’t feel as clean. I use it morning and night for the requisite two minutes and get A+ ratings on the health of my teeth and gums when I go in for cleanings every 6 months. They are more expensive than a regular toothbrush, but I think the money they save me on teeth problems makes it invaluable.
