Did you know that the gums do not attach to your teeth at the level you see it meet the enamel?
There is always a pocket or trench made by the gum 360° around the tooth. This pocket is where bacteria and plaque live that make gum disease. This gum pocket has to be cleaned out very frequently to avoid bleeding gums and gingivitis.
Consistent good oral hygiene and professional dental cleanings accomplish this very well for us. They keep us healthy and prevent chronic bad breath and tooth loss. The National Football League has its “play 60 program”. Their program encourages us to play for 60 minutes every day.
The physical and psychological benefits are big: our mood is better, our heart is better and we are more relaxed. I coined the term “clean 360 program” for dentistry. It encourages us to clean 360 degrees around each of our teeth.
This can be accomplished with brushing, flossing and the use of any of a host of several tools that get gently around and between our teeth. Both programs are designed help us enjoy the benefits of healthy living.
Please join us in healthy, quality living.
For more information about “clean 360” call us at 781-272-5890 to schedule an appointment to see us and learn more techniques for dental health.
After all is said and done, it’s all about prevention & retention!
