This message from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville is about flossing your teeth, and dental health.
Most people know that flossing is an important part of dental health. The value of this simple exercise has been shown time and time again. But does fear have to play a role?
Flossing offers a chance to remove bits and pieces that a toothbrush will undoubtedly miss. But, being afraid of the ‘cavity bugs,’ ‘mouth germies,’ or the ‘dental bogeyman’ may still not compel Mechanicsville folks to floss regularly. The fear of gingivitis and gum disease or crowns and fillings from cavities work for a week or so after a cleaning, but may not instill a lasting habit between teeth cleanings.
We encourage our dental patients to look at flossing as an opportunity to start fresh, just as showering and dressing for the day is a positive way to increase motivation. Initiate flossing into your routine!
At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, we want the best possible dental health for all our patients. Brush and floss daily, and see us for regular checkups! Services include general and family dentistry, and restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
