Dental Opinions, Flossing

Posted on Dec. 29th 2017 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Plan Reviews No Comments »

Often times there are people that will think that food does not get caught between their teeth so flossing is really not needed.  However they would be wrong, because flossing is not so much about removing food bits between teeth as it is about removing dental plaque that forms on tooth surfaces between cleanings. Dental plaque is what causes tooth decay, inflamed gums, periodontal disease, and eventually tooth loss. Flossing is an effective way to remove plaque between teeth.

Dental Opinions, Changing your Toothbrush

Posted on Nov. 23rd 2017 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Plan Reviews No Comments »

Make sure to keep your toothbrush fresh by replacing your toothbrush every three to four months. Old toothbrushes are dirty, ineffective and bad for your health. Studies show that after three months of normal wear and tear, toothbrushes are much less effective at removing plaque from teeth and gums compared to new ones. It is also important to note that you should change your toothbrush after having a cold, flu, mouth infection or sore throat. That is because germs can stay on the bristles of the your toothbrush which could lead to reinfection.
