Dental Values Exposed By Our Daily Habits
A value is a person’s principle or standards of behavior determining what is important in their life. A habit is a regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up. Did you know that your daily habits expose what you value the most? How do your daily dental habits expose the value you place upon your dental health?
Let’s discuss this concept a bit further. If you are in the habit to exercising three times a week, it is evident that you value your physical health. If you are in the habit of sorting your recyclables each day, it is evident that you value taking care of our environment and reducing and reusing.
How does this apply to your teeth? What do your dental habits say about how much you value your dental health?
If you are in the habit of brushing your teeth at least twice a day, this is a good indicator that you value your dental health.
If it is your habit to floss your teeth at least once a day, this is a good indicator that you value your dental health.
If you are in the habit of visiting your dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning and checkup, this is a good indicator that you value your dental health.
Choosing to be consistent involves first identifying your values and then converting them into a decision-making process that forms behaviors that are second nature, and it eventually becomes a habit.
