Many dental patients wonder why, with all the improvements in dentistry, we still send you home with a complimentary toothbrush and roll of floss.
It’s true, they do seem a little old-fashioned in our high-tech world, but don’t let their simple design fool you. These tools are your best friends to prevent tooth decay, plaque build-up, and gum disease for dental patients!
When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are a key part of everyday oral hygiene.
Brushing, which should be done at least twice a day, can be done effectively with any type of toothbrush. There is no need to pay a bundle for a fancy electric toothbrush. Just brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes making certain to reach all the surfaces and nooks and crannies.
Flossing should be done once a day and is critical for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot.
I’m Dr. Allan Acton, and I want to help you enjoy your dental visits and adore your smile.
Our welcoming staff loves sending our patients away with a new toothbrush and floss, but we also find it gratifying to see our patients gain renewed confidence with a smile makeover.
We’d love to answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry such as tooth whitening, veneers, dental implants, or any other dental health topic.
