Chances are you have heard in the news recently that there is no need to floss your teeth. At Westermeier Martin Dental Care in Buffalo, NY we believe flossing plays a role in keeping your mouth and gums healthy. The benefits of flossing cannot be denied and we share that with our patients every day.
The reason there has been discussion about flossing versus not flossing is based on a newspaper article that read, “medical benefits of dental floss unproven.” Contrary to that notion, the National Institutes of Health were quoted as saying, “It’s low risk, low cost. We know there’s a possibility it works, so we feel comfortable telling people to go ahead and do it.”
If you ask your dentist in either of our offices and if you talk with your dental hygienist we will tell you we believe there are myriad benefits of flossing. We will also show you the proper way in which to floss.
Here are some of the benefits and how-tos of flossing your teeth:
If you don’t have a dentist or if you want a new dentist, give our office in East Aurora or Amherst a call and set up an appointment. We make switching dentists easy. We also pride ourselves on our pain-free, judgement free dental practice.
Helping you achieve your dental goals is our goal. We’d love to make you smile today!
