Even the crocodile has his own toothbrush - it's the Plover. This bird flies into the croc’s mouth and cleans its teeth. Maybe not twice a day but...
Brushing alone misses 40% of your tooth surfaces – so yes, flossing is very important.
Three out of four dental patients keep their toothbrushes longer than they should. Whenever you place a toothbrush into your mouth, it can be contaminated with bacteria microbes. These little critters can live on a toothbrush for weeks. It is recommended that you clean your brush regularly and replace it every three months, and always after you have an episode of the flu, cold or other viral infections. Notorious bacteria can implant themselves on the toothbrush bristles leading to re-infection.
We know your time is valuable and we make it our priority to be on time for all appointments. We are currently at 96% on-time appointments and are working hard to take every patient back at or before the appointment time. Occasionally we run behind because of an emergency but we will always keep you informed if we think we are going to be late so you can gauge your arrival time.
