When we talk about getting a green smile on behalf of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re not talking about the green tinge you end up with when you drink green-colored fruit punch. Instead, we’re focusing on the way you can make some changes to your dental care to ensure you’re protecting the environment, while you protect your oral health. Didn’t realize this was a possibility? Fortunately, we have some simple tips to help you on your way if sustainability is important to you.
Don’t Leave The Water Running
Do you leave the water running while you brush your teeth? If so, and if you’re following our suggestions for optimal oral health care, that means you’re letting it run for a full two minutes. That’s a lot more water than you might imagine! You really only need water to wet your brush, rinse your mouth, rinse your brush, and then quickly wash it all down the drain. Turn the water off as you’re brushing as an easy way to conserve H20.
See Us For Digital X-Rays
Did you know that digital X-rays are much more environmentally friendly than conventional imaging? We rely on a computer system and technology, which does not require: Film, processing chemicals, or the production of waste. Come see us for your “green” preventive care!
Stop Using Disposable Cups
Yes, if you ditch the disposable cups, you’re going to have to make sure you’re using a clean cup every day. However, that’s a small price to pay if you’re looking for way to protect your oral health and the environment. You’ll produce no more paper or plastic waste by rinsing your smile. It’s a simple change that can have quite an impact.
