Most people know that flossing is important for good dental health. The value of this simple exercise in oral hygiene has been shown time and time again. But at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we wonder: does fear play a part in your committment to flossing?
Flossing is a chance to remove bits and pieces that a toothbrush cannot reach. But, being afraid of the ‘cavity bugs,’ ‘mouth germies,’ or the ‘dental bogeyman’ may still not compel you to floss regularly. The fear of gingivitis and gum disease or crowns and fillings from cavities work for a week or so after a cleaning, but may not instill a lasting habit between teeth cleanings.
We encourage our dental patients to look at flossing as an opportunity to start fresh, just as showering and dressing for the day is a positive way to increase motivation.
It doesn’t have to be about fear! At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno we want all our patients to enjoy good dental health, and that means regular flossing and brushing. It also means regular checkups. We offer family and cosmetic dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!
