Bridgewater NJ Dentist Saves Your Smile
Did you know that about half of the patients of your Bridgewater NJ dentist choose NOT to floss daily, or that they rarely do? Unfortunately, that statistic does not adhere strictly to just patients around our area. Based upon several surveys, about half of dental patients polled worldwide floss daily- while the other half, do not.
What many patients do not realize is how important flossing is…even more so than brushing in some cases. A lack of flossing can lead to gum disease, which has been correlated to heart disease, diabetes and more. All of this besides the more “usual” instances of decay and/or bleeding gums a lack of flossing can result in.
And because flossing is often seen as more “time consuming” or more “difficult” to do, some patients will have excuses about not doing it:
“I don’t know how to floss properly.” “Food never is stuck in my teeth.” “I’m not coordinated enough.”
Your Bridgewater NJ dentist has heard them all.
To put those excuses, amongst many more, by the wayside, today we have provided you with a list of tips and tricks for getting your best flossing done ever. You can access that list by Clicking Here.
