Are You Flossing Out Of Fear?

Most people know that flossing is an important part of oral health. The value of this simple yet essential exercise in oral hygiene has been shown time and time again. But does fear have to play a role in Tampa’s commitment to the practice?

Flossing offers a chance to remove bits and pieces that a toothbrush will undoubtedly miss. But, being afraid of the ‘cavity bugs,’ ‘mouth germies,’ or the ‘dental bogeyman’ may still not compel Valrico folks to floss regularly. The fear of gingivitis and gum disease or crowns and fillings from cavities work for a week or so after a cleaning, but may not instill a lasting habit between teeth cleanings.

We encourage our dental patients to look at flossing as an opportunity to start fresh, just like showering and dressing for the day, and initiate flossing into your established routine. Practicing this habit reminds you to start off with a positive attitude as you approach your day. Flossing could be a time to think about the foods you are putting into your mouth and consider what improvements could be made to your diet. Living in health-conscious communities can also help motivate you to floss regularly. The fresh air you breathe on a short walk will feel smooth as your run your tongue along the ridges of your teeth.

It doesn’t have to be about fear! Call us at: 813-413-7518 Our knowledgeable dental staff knows that flossing can be a concern for their dental patients and a brightened patient is always better than a frightened one. We offer many ways to enhance your smile and self-confidence. Make a cosmetic dental appointment today to consider whether Invisalign can lighten your look, porcelain veneers can influence your flair, and sedation dentistry or teeth whitening can ease your anxiety. We aim to make it a phenomenal experience!
