Many of our patients wonder why, with all the breakthroughs in dentistry, Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville still sends 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. You can’t re-invent the wheel! These tools are your best friends to prevent cavities, plaque build-up, and gum disease for dental patients!
When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are a critical part of everyday oral hygiene.
Brushing, which should be done at least twice a day, can be done capably with any type of toothbrush. There is no need to pay a bundle for a fancy electric toothbrush. 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 vital for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot.
Freedom Village Dental hygienists and dentists love sending our patients away with a new toothbrush and floss, but we also find it rewarding to see our patients gain renewed confidence with a smile makeover. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule a cleaning and checkup at our Jacksonville office today.
