We know that sometimes dentists sound like a broken record with the “brush and floss regularly” advice we give out frequently, but the value of strong oral health and hygiene habits at home can simply not be understated. We frequently see patients who require extensive work (such as crowns and implants) that could have easily have been prevented.
While it’s normal to forget a brush here and there, serious oral health issues can result from a sporadic brushing and flossing routine. Beyond the annoyance of cavities, those who do not devote adequate attention to their smiles may find themselves in need of tooth replacements, bridges, and a host of other extensive work.
Make your smile a priority everyday!
