What is the RIGHT way to FLOSS?
Proper flossing removes plaque and food particles in places where a toothbrush cannot easily reach like:
- Under the gumline
- In between your teeth.
Plaque build-up can lead to inflammation and tooth decay, therefore daily flossing is highly recommended.
PROPER FLOSSING TECHNIQUE
1. Starting with approximately 20 inches of floss, winding the floss around each middle finger, while leaving an inch or two of floss to work with.
2. Hold the floss tautly between your thumbs and index fingers, then slide it gently up-and-down between your teeth.
3. Gently curve the floss around the base of each tooth and make sure you go beneath the gumline. DO NOT snap or force the floss into your gums, as this may cut or bruise the gum tissue.
4. Use a clean section of floss as you move from tooth to tooth.
5. To remove the floss, use the same back-and-forth motion to bring the floss up and away from the teeth.
Why is FLUORIDE so important?
TOP 7 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FLUORIDE
1. Systemic Fluoride (ex. fluoride that is absorbed in your body) is incorporated into teeth- pre-eruption.
2. Topical Fluoride (ex fluoride from toothpaste) is incorporated into teeth post-eruption.
3. 50% of fluoride ingested goes into bones & teeth! (rest excreted through urine).
4. Only 66% Municipal Water System in US fluoridate the water
5. Fluoride prevents tooth decay! The healthy range of fluoride in tap water is MINIMAL, and is globally accepted at 0.7-1.2ppm (that's about $0.01 for every $10,000). Any MORE that 1.2 ppm can be detrimental to your teeth and and less than 0.7 does not show to have any significant effect on enamel health.

What is the RIGHT way to BRUSH?
WHAT KIND OF TOOTHBRUSH DO I NEED?
1. SIZE: Think about the size of your mouth. Is YOUR toothbrush a suitable size for your mouth??
2. BRISTLES: Know your bristles!! SOFT bristles are recommended to reduce mechanical threat to the soft tissues of your gums.
3. ELECTRIC OR MANUAL? It's an individual preference! Mechanical toothbrushes can help maximize brushstrokes to clean teeth more effectively. They are also a great alternative for people that may have dexterity issues with a manual toothbrush. It can, however, be technique sensitive, so ask your dentist to show you the proper way to use it!
4. TOOTHBRUSH REPLACEMENT: Is your toothbrush clean and the bristles in good shape?? The ADA suggests you get a new brush every 3 or 4 months.
-If your BRISTLES ARE FRAYED, replace your brush
-Many brushes have COLORED BRISTLES. When the color starts fading at the end of the bristles (the part that touches your teeth), it's time for a new one!
What are other preventive options?
A Sealant ("See-LANT") is a fluid resin material that is placed into the depressions and grooves of tooth and light cured. They are commonly placed in the grooves and pits of posterior teeth, in both adults and children.
In most cases will not require the removal of any tooth structure.
Sealants will prevent substrate and bacteria from collecting in the grooves and pits of the teeth. Thereby preventing “acid attack” in these areas.
