Are you flossing?

At every dental visit you are going to be asked if you are flossing. If you are flossing, GREAT! however, if you are not and lie…..your hygienist WILL know.
Your hygienist and dentist will know if you are not flossing by these signs:
Inflamed Gums– The most obvious sign you are not flossing. Plaque, bacteria and food will sit in between the teeth when you do not brush and floss properly. As a result your gums will begin to appear pink, puffy, and bleed very easily.
Increased Tooth Decay-If you have any tooth cavities or the beginning stages of cavities, it indicates that flossing is a weak point in your dental hygiene regimen.
Cuts or Abrasions on Gums- This indicates you are not flossing regularly or properly.
So remember these signs next time you think about lying to your hygienist regarding your flossing!
What Our Patients Are Saying
Monica and Elizabeth made cleaning and x-RAYS tolerable. We laughed the whole time. Dr Mark was clear and concise. Everyone there has a great sense of humor. I hate going to the dentist but this trip was my best experience to date.
Friendly staff, exceptional patient care
The office is well-appointed, relaxing and the staff treat everyone like family. It's also nice to not feel 'judged' when my dental status is not textbook. Never had a dentist before that didn't give me the hairy eyeball over not flossing every day. I like their holistic approach to health, not just teeth.
Aesthetic Dentistry was professional and accommodating for a dental emergency I experienced. From Emily to Hannah to Dr Duncan I was extremely impressed with not only the customer service but the professionalism and the empathy for my work schedule. Their dental techniques are the best available providing a seamless and pain free experience. I HIGHLY recommend their practice!!
A++. Lovely people in this practice, true gentle dentistry and care. Would recommend anyone, especially someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a while and is nervous. Doctor personally calls his patients the evening of your appointment to follow up. 😎
