Flossing your teeth thoroughly once a day goes a long way to keeping teeth and gums healthy. While brushing removes food particles from your teeth, a toothbrush is not enough to address the plaque developing between your teeth – the culprit in gum disease and decay. Make flossing a habit and you will notice the difference in gum health and the overall cleanliness of your teeth.
At Hillock Family Dentistry, we educate our patients, from the youngest to the oldest, on proper flossing technique, as we want them to maintain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime.
The primary reasons for considering an All-on-4 are obvious. You will regain the functional benefits of natural teeth and improve your general oral health. You will regain a healthy-looking, natural smile and the confidence and ease with others that comes with that.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. It has been estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. A single tooth implant offers you the opportunity to replace a missing tooth with a permanent, fixed tooth that looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth. You’ll be able to care for your implant in the same way as you care for your other teeth.
