Total at-home dental care for our patients from Woodstock and surrounding areas includes flossing

Most people, from a very early age, are taught the importance of taking care of teeth. We know that we should brush our teeth every day, in the morning and again at night, and choose healthy foods so that cavities do not cause damage and pain. Flossing, the partner to brushing, is something that many people find challenging. When brushing our teeth, we see an immediate result. Flossing, on the other hand, does not show us anything, unless a stray particle of food has been hiding in between teeth. This practice, however, is as important to total oral health as professional dental care from your dentist near Woodstock.

Brushing and flossing are intended for the prevention of dental problems such as cavities and gum disease, both of which are caused by the same factor, bacteria. In our mouths live several different types of bacteria, both harmful, and beneficial. Optimal oral health comes in eliminating the types of bacteria that can harm the body. Our natural bacterial balance is affected by the foods and drinks we regularly consume, and our lifestyle habits.

When harmful bacteria thrive in the mouth, sticking to teeth and gums, the protective layer of enamel breaks down, and gum tissue becomes infected. Most people attempt to keep their teeth healthy by brushing as they were taught, and using toothpaste containing fluoride. More is needed for true protection, and that step is flossing.

Brushing is effective in the elimination of bacteria, yes. But not all bacteria collect on areas of the teeth that are easily reached. After brushing, bacteria remain in the mouth, hiding between teeth and at the gum line. It is only through flossing that these lingering bacteria can be removed, and teeth successfully protected from their harmful effects. Another layer of protection can be added by ending the oral hygiene routine with an antibacterial oral rinse.

We don't have to get through life with the teeth we were born with. Nature gives us a second chance. Caring for permanent teeth with adequate brushing and flossing will allow you to enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile for your lifetime.

We can help you get a handle on dental problems. Contact us to experience excellence in dental care.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

    My 8 year old son had to have 2 teeth pulled because the babies just didn't want to let go. The whole procedure went amazing! My son was like "Wait we're done already? I didn't feel anything! Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
