At the risk of sounding like your mom or Grade 1 teacher, Able Dental reminds you once again of the benefits of good home dental care. It begins and ends with regular – and correct – brushing and flossing. Yes, regular visits to your Able Dental hygienist is essential for complete tooth care, but you can enhance those efforts measurably. Nothing can replace a professional dental cleaning, as you do not have the specialized tooling needed to clean below the gum line.

Brushing

You should brush your teeth at least twice a day using a small brush with soft, rounded bristles.

Flossing

Daily flossing prevents periodontal disease and limits the depth of gum pockets. Choose floss that’s pleasant to use.
