Why You Should Ask if Your Dentist if You Are Flossing Properly

Posted on 6/15/2017 by Dr. Brahmbhatt
A man flossing his teeth.
Have you ever been nervous about going in to see your dentist, wondering if your teeth are as healthy as you want them to be? Part of this is not being sure that you are doing everything you can to care for your teeth.

If you are not sure that your oral hygiene routine is doing everything you need it to do, who else should you ask besides the one person who would know best? That's right, you need to talk to your dentist.

Why Your Dentist is the Best Person for the Job

While you may want to speak with your doctor or even your hygienist, your dentist is going to give you the best overall answers.

Yes, your doctor is going to know about the bad health ramifications of poor flossing, they may not have the training to be able to see if any issues are starting in your mouth. Your hygienist knows if your teeth are clean, but they are not going to see your mouth in as great of detail as your dentist will.

Your dentist is going to look at each individual tooth during an examination. They will look at your gums, and at the spaces between each tooth. If you are missing anywhere, your dentist will be able to see it.

Talk to them about how you currently floss, and find out if there is anything you can do to improve or update your technique. This is a very important part of keeping your overall health up, and your oral health in ideal shape.

Contact our office any time you have a question about how well you are taking care of your mouth. He or she can look in your mouth, and actually point out any problem areas that you may have.
