The Gift Of Oral Health

The Gift Of Oral Health In Kelowna

Many of our patients at Choose Your Smile in Kelowna wonder why, with all the advances in dentistry, we still send you home with a complimentary toothbrush and roll of floss.

It’s true, they do seem a little old-fashioned in our high-tech world, but don’t let that fool you. These tools are your best friends to prevent cavities, plaque build-up, and gum disease!

When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential part of everyday oral hygiene.

Brushing, which should be done at least twice a day, can be done capably with any type of toothbrush. There is no need to pay a bundle for a fancy electric toothbrush. Just brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes making sure to reach all the surfaces.

Flossing should be done once a day and is critical for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. Some patients wonder whether it’s better to floss before or after brushing. You can make a case for one or the other, but we think the most important thing is that you do both.

At Choose Your Smile dentistry in Kelowna, we offer general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment with us today.
