Woodbridge Family Dental Stresses: Essential Periodontal Care Is In The Hands Of Virginia Patients
It may be a bit surprising that the most effective actions you can take towards beautifying and preserving your smile are inexpensive, simple and accessible to just about anyone, anywhere. It may be even more surprising that these fundamental actions are either done improperly or outright neglected by so many people. It’s no different with Dr. Hassan’s patients of Woodbridge Family Dental. Dr. Hassan wants to give his patients and all Woodbridge, VA residents a brush-up on the importance of daily oral hygiene basics. These basics go far when it comes to periodontic care. They’re also the simplest, most familiar steps: brushing and flossing.
Brushing and flossing are among the first things we learn to do when it comes to taking care of our teeth, and there’s a good reason for that: prevention is the best solution. Neglecting a daily brushing and flossing routine puts your smile at risk for problems, big and small. These include cavities, chronic halitosis, mild to severe tooth decay, gum disease, periodontal infection, tooth loss, enamel damage, and, as more and more studies are confirming, heart problems and other internal health issues. By brushing your teeth, you remove external substances like food and beverage residue, which promote tissue corrosion and proliferation of harmful microorganisms. Flossing also accomplishes this, but with more crucial effect. By flossing in addition to daily brushing, you remove the particles and reside that cannot be reached with toothbrush bristles. These critical spaces between the teeth and gum tissue often cause the greatest problems since they’re so often neglected, even in the case of very diligent brushing routines. Brushing and flossing alone may not be able to provide you with as comprehensive a clean as you’ll receive through the care at Woodbridge Family Dental, but it’s certainly essential to reducing the likelihood of needing more advanced oral care services, and the best things you can do to maintain day-to-day oral health.
Brushing and flossing alone add up to numerous benefits. These include fresher breath, whiter teeth, healthier and stronger gums, significantly reduced likelihood of need for fillings, tooth extractions, implants, dentures, root canals, treatment of gingivitis and periodontal disease, bleaching, scaling and root planing, as well as various oral surgeries. While Dr. Hassan is happy to help his Woodbridge, VA patients with many advanced oral care services, it’s the mission of Woodbridge Family Dental to help patients prevent the need for them in the first place-- and the best means of accomplishing that is through diligent and thorough brushing and flossing.
