Most people know that flossing is an important part of dental health. At Priority Dental in Casper, the value of this simple exercise has been shown time and time again. But does fear have to play a role in the commitment to the practice?
Flossing is your chance to remove bits and pieces that a toothbrush will undoubtedly miss. But, being afraid of the ‘cavity bugs,’ ‘mouth germies,’ or the ‘dental bogeyman’ may still not compel you to floss regularly. The fear of gingivitis, gum disease or cavities work for a week or so after a cleaning, but may not instill a lasting habit between teeth cleanings.
At Priority Dental in Casper, we encourage our dental patients to look at flossing as an opportunity to start fresh, and initiate flossing into your established routine. Flossing can be a positive opportunity to remind yourself to smile and feel happy as you approach your day. Flossing could be a time to think about the foods you are putting into your mouth and consider what improvements could be made to your diet.
It doesn’t have to be about fear! At Priority Dental we want all our patients to enjoy excellent dental health. Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today.
