To wrap up Gum Disease Awareness Month, we want to emphasize the importance of preventive care.

This means visiting our dentist office in Reading, MA, for professional dental cleanings. It also means having a good oral hygiene routine that includes brushing twice a day and cleaning between your teeth and gums daily.

Dental flossĀ is the most common tool used for cleaning the spaces your toothbrush can’t reach. But it’s not your only option as this short video by the American Dental Association demonstrates.

If you have questions about how to use dental floss or any other interdental cleaner, just ask our team at First Dental Associates by calling [phone] or by filling out our online form.

Better yet, ask us during your next visit. Schedule your next cleaning today if you haven’t already.
