Dear Patient: You’re Busted!
Recent studies have shown that a great many Americans are ignoring a simple activity that will keep their smiles looking gorgeous, help prevent cavities, reduce tooth loss, and – as many dentists and physicians believe – significantly reduce the chances of heart disease and strokes.
Though a large majority of patients swear they do this simple activity, according to the American Dental Association, more than 90% of Americans don’t! What is that simple activity? That’s easy – it’s flossing your teeth! And just remember, a quick and strenuous attempt to floss right before your visit to our office doesn’t fool us! Please continue reading – it can change your life!
The Importance of Flossing
Flossing is the absolute best method of cleaning bacteria and debris from the spaces in between your teeth and underneath your gums. Left alone, that harmful film can cause cavities and gum disease, as it eats away at the bone that actually holds your teeth in place and causes your teeth to loosen and, sooner or later, be lost. What’s worse, recent research has linked gum disease to heart disease and strokes. But there’s hope for everyone!
Most activities require practice and patience. You couldn’t play a musical instrument without practice and, more often than not, academic or professional tutelage. You probably never solved a complex puzzle the very first time you sat down to try it. And though flossing is certainly much easier than either of the aforementioned activities, far too many people try it just a few times and then give up in frustration believing that they can’t, and never will, do it correctly. But with a little patience and practice you definitely can! And some of the better flosses in stores today make it so much easier than it has ever been in the past.
We at Smile Design Dental Team want you to keep your beautiful teeth for the rest of your life and maintain the best overall good health possible.
