The number one complaint that dental patients hear from their dentist and hygienist is that they are not flossing teeth regularly enough, or at all. Yes, flossing adds 30 seconds to a bedtime routine. Yes, flossing teeth requires that a little extra care be taken to the teeth. But, did you know that those extra 30 seconds could take five minutes off of your next dental cleaning? Imagine going to a dental checkup and not having to have your teeth scraped, and scraped, and scraped. Did your teeth just do a little dance in your mouth?!? Flossing teeth can not only prevent unwanted scraping at the dentist, but it is also extremely important for the health of your entire mouth. At Family & Cosmetic Dental Care we want to partner with our patients so that they have the cleanest, healthiest, and most beautiful smiles around.
Flossing teeth is considered to be the most important part of oral hygiene. Yes, you read that correctly. Flossing is more important than brushing. Plaque builds up between the teeth where a toothbrush cannot reach. This plaque generates acid, which can not only cause cavities, but plaque can also eat away at the tooth enamel and gums – leading to gum disease and tooth loss. For those who choose not to floss, they are leaving the teeth dirty and covered in bacteria.
At Family & Cosmetic Dental Care, we are a family centered dental practice. We treat patients of all ages, from their very first birthday to those who wish not to give their ages. We are a comprehensive dental practice that values our patients, and we want to ensure that all of our patients receive the care that they deserve.
