Port Charlotte FL Dentist on The Right Time for your Regimen
Like most things in life, when it comes to dental care- timing can be everything. The number of times your visit your Port Charlotte FL dentist in a year (hopefully twice), the number of times you brush your teeth on a daily basis (also, hopefully twice), the time spent brushing…so on and so forth.
Officials like the ADA (American Dental Association) have made recommendations about dental care as it comes to timing because they not only have years of experience and research backing these findings but also know how we relate to time. All humans are born with some sort of internal clock, rather it is working “the way it should” for some, is up for debate certainly. Regardless of that, we all do recognize the importance of the hands on the clock and what we have to do, and when.
One main issue this constantly pops up in is with regard to flossing, which you should be doing at least once daily…but that is not what is questioned here. What is in need of answering is WHEN to do it? Most patients of your Port Charlotte FL dentist don’t just floss when hanging around- they do it when they brush their teeth. But flossing before or after brushing? That is a situation that many patients question- but often opinions clash.
