Many people hate flossing or just forget to do it, but it is actually really good for the health of your teeth and gums. Unfortunately toothbrushes (manual or electric) are not able to fully access and clean in between the teeth where they are tightly touching.
Most of our patients usually come in every six months for a check up and a professional cleaning. The majority of dental problems are preventable, and so early identification usually results in simpler and more conservative treatments which in turn means time and cost savings. With many dental issues, the problem can be quite far along before you start feeling any pain at all!
