Fun Facts From Your Wyomissing Dentist Office

 
You usually don’t see the words “fun” and “dentistry” in the same sentence, but it’s happening now. If we think dentistry is fun, so can you. Enjoy these three fun facts about dentistry that you might not have known before. Fun Dental Facts
 
  • #1 It’s beneficial to floss before you brush: It’s typically thought that you should brush before you floss. In actuality, flossing before you brush will remove more food particles in hard to reach places, making it easier for fluoride to treat more of the surface area.
  • #2 Adults benefit more from 90-degree angle brushing: While everyone should brush at a 90-degree angle, this is very vital to adult patients because it’s the best brushing position for the gumline, which reveals to be more trouble to keep healthy than any other part of the mouth.
  • #3 Fluoride treatment at Wyomissing dentist office can reverse early signs of tooth decay: You probably already know that fluoride is good for your oral health. Fluoride is found in toothpaste, floss and mouthwash, among other products. Fluoride’s job is to help strengthen the tooth enamel and combat cavity-causing acid. But did you know that fluoride can also reverse the early signs of tooth decay?
