Flossing: 3 Reasons To Talk With Us About It

If you haven’t talked with us about flossing and dental hygiene lately, perhaps you need to. Are you someone who performs this detail daily, you don’t have any problems to speak of, and your smile is in quite fantastic health? If so, then you are probably just fine without any additional discussion regarding dental floss with us. However, if you aren’t performing your flossing session every day, your smile could be healthier, or you simply wonder about your flossing, then by all means: Talk with us during a visit! There are some very good reasons to do so.

#1: You Think Your Technique Could Be Better

Do you feel a little disappointed with your flossing technique? Do you walk away from your dental hygiene feeling like it was a little sloppy, all over the place, or like you’re just crossing your fingers that you’re doing things right? This isn’t for the best! Ask us for help with getting through your session with effective, streamlined care. We can help you.

#2: It Feels Very Uncomfortable

Ask us why if your flossing doesn’t feel good or neutral. Discomfort should never be part of the equation.

#3: You Hear You Don’t Really Need To Do It

It’s quite likely that at some point, you have read or heard that when you practice your dental hygiene, the flossing portion is not necessary. We will immediately tell you when you ask that this is not true. You do need to floss. You need to do it once every day of your life. It is extremely helpful in removing food bits and plaque, which means it extremely helpful in allowing you to avoid decayed teeth and periodontal disease.
