Many of our patients at Mark A. Miely DDS in Upper Arlington wonder why, with all the improvements in dentistry, we still send you home with a complimentary toothbrush and roll of floss.
It’s true, they do seem a little old-fashioned in our high-tech world. But don’t let their simple design fool you. These tools are the best way to prevent decay, plaque build-up, and gum disease!
Brushing and flossing are a vital part of everyday oral hygiene. When done properly and consistently, they are the best way to maintain your dental health.
Brushing, which should be done at least twice a day, can be done efficiently with any type of toothbrush. There is no need to pay a bundle for a fancy electric toothbrush. Just brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes making sure to reach all the surfaces..
Flossing should be done at least once a day, and is critical for reaching the areas that a toothbrush cannot.
Our caring staff loves sending our patients away with a new toothbrush and floss, but we also find it enjoyable to see our patients gain renewed confidence with a smile makeover.
