Fun Facts about Flossing:
1. Flossing Less than half of Americans floss daily; with men flossing less than women.
2. Brushing your teeth without flossing is like only washing 70% of your body.
3. Dental floss was first manufactured in 1882 and was made of silk.
4. In 1994 a prison inmate in West Virginia braided floss into a rope, scaled a wall and escaped.
Here is a great example of a 71 year old female patient who always desired a " nicer" smile. After discussing her options, we referred her for Invisalign treatment with an Orthodontist. She did not think that straightening teeth was an option at her age! We explained that in the hands of our specialist colleagues, Invisalign is both comfortable and predictable.
Once alignment was completed, we took care of her bleaching and Voila ! She says " I have been wanting to do something about my smile for more than 30 years ! " and I tear up!
Don't wait that long! I would be happy to discuss options at your next appointment !
See you soon !
