Many dental patients wonder why, with all the advances in dentistry, Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH 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 they’re also your best friend in maintaining your dental health.
When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are a critical part of everyday oral hygiene.
Brushing, which you should do 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. Be sure to use a fluoridated toothpaste.
Flossing should be done once a day and is important for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot.
A crucial part of your dental health is to see us at Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NY every six months. We’ll send you home with a new toothbrush and floss every time. We provide family and cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and urgent dental care.
