Many dental patients in the Trinity area may wonder why, with all the advances in dental medicine, 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 the best bet to prevent tooth decay, plaque build-up, and gum disease for Trinity dental patients!
When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential 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 from your local Wal-Mart, just brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes making sure to reach all the surfaces.
Flossing should be done once a day and is important for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Trinity area drugstores, so find one you like.
I’m Dr. Jason Horwitz, an experienced Trinity dentist, and I want to help you enjoy your general dentistry visits and adore your smile.
Our modern staff loves sending our Trinity area patients away with a new toothbrush and floss, but we also find it rewarding to see our cosmetic dentistry 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.
