Oral Health Issues (That Happen To Everyone!)

Are you currently a little worried about something associated with your oral health but you don’t want to ask us about it? Is it because it’s something you feel a little embarrassed about? First, we want to remind you that there are a lot of not-so-lovely things that just about everyone experiences at some point. So, if you think you’re the only person in the world wondering how to deal with a particular problem with your smile, think again: You’re probably in very good company!

Everyone Throws Up

You probably don’t really want to mention it. Maybe just the term “vomit” is one you hope to never need to utter in front of another living soul. However, this will probably happen to you every now and then and it’s good that you’re wondering how to protect your oral health when it does. Fortunately, this is easy. After it occurs, rinse your mouth out with water. Then, don’t rush to the sink to brush. Give your smile about 30 minutes to rest and then brush.

Everyone Falls Asleep Without Brushing

Yep, it’s true. Well, it’s probably true. Ask anyone and they can probably tell you at least one time in their life when they accidentally fell asleep without brushing. Granted, this may have happened many moons ago but that doesn’t make it any less relevant. Keep in mind that if it happens to you, the following oral health suggestions will help you prevent it from happening again:

  • Plan to brush the moment you get home from an event before you lie down
  • Plan to brush the same time every night, so you don’t accidentally skip it
  • Plan to brush before you get drowsy, so you’re not forcing yourself out of a comfortable slumber
