The pursuit for ever-whiter teeth is never ending. Whether done through your dentist, or at home using over-the-counter (OTC) products, it’s important to understand how these treatments can affect the overall health of your teeth and gums.
You have probably heard this since you were a small child, but brushing and flossing should be an important part of your hygiene routine every day. Oftentimes, flossing is the most difficult step to remember. Avoiding this vital technique can not only irritate the gums and lead to gum disease, but can increase patients’ risk of cavities. Protect your teeth and gums by flossing the right way.
