Many of our patients wonder why, with all the breakthroughs in dentistry, Town Dental Group dentists still send you home with a complimentary toothbrush and roll of floss.

It’s true, they do seem a little old-fashioned in our high-tech world. But don’t let that simplicity fool you. These tools are the best way to prevent tooth decay, plaque build-up, and gum disease!

When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential part of everyday oral hygiene.

Brushing, which should be done at least twice a day, can be done efficiently with any type of toothbrush. There is no need to pay a bundle for a fancy electric toothbrush. Just brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes making sure to reach the surfaces of every tooth.

Flossing should be done once a day and is vital for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot.

At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, we make sure to send our patients away with a new toothbrush and floss. Dental health, after all, if what we’re all about. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry, and are open in the evenings and weekends for your convenience.
