Caring for patient’s gums in Marietta, GA, we remind you to floss

Flossing is not a new recommendation. You have likely heard repeatedly as you have visited your dentist through the years that flossing should always follow brushing. Even with the persistent reminders from dentists, many people simply do not maintain consistency with their flossing habits. It is easy to see why flossing can be easily forgotten. Nothing shows up on floss, which can make you think that the areas in between teeth are clean, but this is not the case at all.

Flossing has great value in oral hygiene. Without this step, there is no way to experience optimal oral health. Although nothing shows on floss when it is used between the teeth and near the gums, this daily practice is making a dent in the harmful effects of oral bacteria. Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo remain committed to protecting the gums of our various patients. In our Marietta, GA dental practice, we provide regular examinations and tips for home care that work to diminish bacterial activity in the mouth.

Brushing our teeth, we are able to remove tiny particles of food that remain after meals, and even sugar residue and bacteria. Brushing minimizes the risk of plaque buildup, and keeps teeth looking attractive. Perhaps the most important benefit of brushing, as well as flossing, is the removal of bacteria, living organisms that naturally exist in the mouth, thriving even without oxygen. When brushing is performed alone, bacteria hiding between teeth and at the gum line are able to remain intact and healthy.

Bacteria are naturally occurring organisms. Being alive, bacteria feed on microscopic particles of food left behind, sugar residue may not be visible on teeth, but this substance provides ample nutrients for bacteria, which leave toxic acid waste on the teeth. The sulfuric compounds and acid sit on the back of the tongue, causing bad breath, and also on teeth and gums, causing cavities and inflammation. We brush and floss our teeth not only because we want our smiles to look great, but also because invisible bacteria pose a real threat to a healthy smile and body.

Your dentist at Thirty-two Dental is committed to helping you keep your teeth and gums healthy and attractive for life. Contact our office for your dental check-up.

    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.
