Floss & Brush
You already know this, but it’s a good reminder. After all, National Flossing Day is the day after Thanksgiving. Brushing twice per day, and floss daily to clean the places your toothbrush doesn’t reach.
Professional cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to periodontal infections and tooth decay. Plus, we will perform an exam to look for any signs of a gum infection.
If your gums look red or swollen or if your gums bleed, then you have early symptoms of gum disease. This is ready to make an appointment for treatment.
