At your Fort Collins family dentist, Rocky Mountain Dental Care, we offer all patients the latest flossing techniques to preserve the life of the teeth. After all, our adult pearly whites only arrive to us once in a lifetime.
Here are the benefits of flossing:
- It prevents bad breath that could occur when food builds up in our mouth.
- Any substances that cause cavities are removed.
- Long-term effects include prevention of teeth rotting and gum diseases.
- The mouth looks more attractive with no food stuck in between the teeth.
When flossing, it’s important to use a gentle rubbing motion and don’t snap the floss in and out of the mouth. We advise users also to curve the flossing string toward one tooth and then the other, and be gentle.
Using waxed-coated floss would hurt less. Otherwise, using a dental floss holder could make this process easier.
Rocky Mountain Dental Care, we provide top-level care in a very personal environment. Our staff welcomes new patients weekly.
