Many dental patients wonder why, with all the advances in dentistry, Thompson & Frey still sends you home with a complimentary toothbrush and roll of floss. It’s true they seem a little old-fashioned in our high-tech world. But these tools are your best friends in maintaining your dental health.
When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are a key part of everyday oral hygiene.
Brushing, which should be done at least twice a day, can be done efficiently 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 certain to reach all the surfaces and nooks and crannies.
Flossing should be done once a day and is critical for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot.
The friendly and helpful staff at Thompson & Frey in Owensboro loves sending 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’d love to answer any questions you have about dental health, or such topics as family or cosmetic dentistry.
