Brushing your teeth is something we encourage all our patients to do on a regular basis, and flossing is just as important. As an essential element of proper dental hygiene , flossing can reach all of the spots in between the teeth that merely brushing cannot. If you don’t floss, you miss cleaning 35% of tooth surface! When flossing, 18 inches should be used, and held taut between the index finger and thumb on both hands. About one to two inches of floss should be in the space separating hands, and each tooth should be flossed individually, using a zigzag motion to remove any lodged particles; as you move between teeth, a fresh section of floss should be used. Once you are finished with each section, use the floss to slide up and down the surface of the tooth, all the way up between the gum line. Flossing after every meal will help keep your teeth clean and your breath fresh.
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. 😎
