Many dental patients in the Nampa, Meridian, and Sun Valley areas may wonder why, with all the advances in dental medicine, we still send you home with a complimentary toothbrush and roll of floss. It’s true, they do seem a little old-fashioned in our high-tech world, but don’t let their simple design fool you. These tools are the best bet to prevent tooth decay, plaque build-up, and gum disease for Boise dental patients!
When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential part of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing, which should be done at least twice a day, can be done effectively with any type of toothbrush. Whether you use an electric toothbrush or a regular toothbrush, brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes making sure to reach all the surfaces.
Flossing should be done once a day and is important for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Nampa, Meridian, and Sun Valley drugstores, so find one you like.
We’re Drs. Lynn R. & Craig Blaisdell, experienced Boise dentists, and we want to help you enjoy your dental visits and adore your smile.
Our friendly staff loves sending our Boise and Meridian area patients away with a new toothbrush and floss, but we also find it rewarding to see our patients gain renewed confidence with a smile makeover.
We’d love to answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry such as tooth whitening, veneers, dental implants, or any other dental health topic.
