Burke VA Dentist on The Right Time for your Regimen
Like some many aspects of life…timing in dentistry can also mean everything. How many times do you see your Burke VA dentist a year? How often do you brush your teeth? How frequently do you floss? All of these befores and afters, minutes and days can add up- changing your dental destiny.
The ADA (American Dental Association) created recommendations as it relates to time based upon years of research and expert advice from oral health professionals. They bank on the fact that people all have some sort of internal clock, so can relate to the need for doing certain things in a certain time frame. If they get done as suggested, well that is a different story.
One place in a regimen where things may not be as clear is with flossing. Sure, both the ADA and your Burke VA dentist suggest flossing at least once a day, but before or after flossing- that is the question. The answer? Well it may be a little up for debate, but has more to do with behavioral science than you may have thought. See what experts say in the following video and article: Dental Patient News.
