Picking a Dental Floss
It's amazing how much variety you can find in dental floss. With conventional floss, you just tear off a piece at least 18 inches and wind it around your index fingers. If you find traditional thread-like floss is uncomfortable for your gums, try dental ribbon, its smoother counterpart. Dental flossers are often regarded as being easier to manage than conventional floss. There's no need to wrap any excess thread around your fingers, which some find uncomfortable.
If you have a fixed bridge in your mouth, nifty little floss threaders allow you to thread the floss between your teeth, under the bridge work. If you have questions about dental floss, just call Owasso Dental Care at (855) 800-6366 and we’ll be happy to make a recommendation.
Bruxism: Not the Usual Grind
Sure, it's annoying when friends, spouses or children grind their teeth at night, but the effects could be much more serious than the loss of a good night's sleep on your part. This sleep disorder, called bruxism, can lead to a number of ailments, including loose or lost teeth. Even lighter grinding can wear down tooth enamel.
If you or someone in your family is grinding their teeth at night, call us at (855) 800-6366 to schedule an appointment with FistName Argo, D.D.S..
It's Best To Detect Dental Problems Early
Cavities and broken fillings are easy to treat when they’re caught in the early stages. Without regular trips to the dentist, these problems will only get worse and can lead to expensive and uncomfortable root canals, gum surgery and tooth extraction.
You owe it to yourself, and your pocketbook, to get regular dental care. Contact Owasso Dental Care today at (855) 800-6366 to schedule an appointment for a checkup and cleaning.
