Dental floss

You know that exercise is good for your entire body. Exercise keeps your heart strong, it keeps the fat at bay, and it releases endorphins that make you feel good. You know that a healthy diet is also good for your health and body, and you make necessary changes and commitments to live a healthy lifestyle. Why then is it so difficult to floss your teeth? Flossing your teeth is an essential step in maintaining optimal oral health. At Crabapple Dental, we are here to partner with our patients to help them learn the techniques of flossing while educating them on its importance.

Did you know that flossing the teeth is considered to be more important than brushing them? Let that thought sink in the next time you think about skipping the floss. While brushing is certainly important, the natural formation of saliva in the mouth and the constant movement of the tongue does much of the work that brushing with a toothbrush does. Albeit, a toothbrush is more effective at cleaning the teeth all at once, but the surfaces of the teeth are naturally taken care of. However, it is the spaces in between the teeth that do not receive these same natural benefits; because of this, flossing is necessary.

The spaces between the teeth are very tight spots where food particles, plaque, and bacteria love to hang out and thrive. It is these very spots where gingivitis begins, and when it goes untreated, it can quickly turn into irreparable periodontal disease and tooth loss. Flossing removes food particles from the spaces in between the teeth and swipes away plaque that begins to form. Think of how dirty your teeth feel when you go from morning until night without brushing. That “fuzzy” feeling on your teeth is plaque. Now, think of how dirty the in between spaces of your teeth are if you are not flossing them. Yuck!

Call Crabapple Dental today to schedule your appointment for a thorough, professional cleaning to rid your mouth of plaque. We will educate you on the proper techniques of flossing so that it is no longer a chore that you hate, but one that you appreciate.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
