Many dental patients in Birmingham MI and the surrounding areas 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 dental patients!
When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential part of everyday dental health. 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 Birmingham MI 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 your local drugstores, so find one you like.
