Timing is Everything

Summerlin Dentist on The Right Time for your Regimen

Like a majority of things in life, timing can mean everything…and this idea is no different in dentistry. How many times do you go visit your Summerlin dentist a year? How often do you brush daily? If you brush daily, how long do you do it for? All of these questions, and so many more time-sensitive ones, can have a huge impact on your “dental destiny.”

 

Organizations like the ADA (American Dental Association) make suggestions on the length and number of times you do things based upon years of research and the expertise of thousands of oral health experts. They rely upon the fact that every person has some sort of internal clock, and thus, some sort of acknowledgment of what it is to keep a schedule of some sorts.

 

One area where this advice can be a little hazy or less exact is when it comes to flossing. Sure, you should be flossing at least once a day…but should it be before or after you brush your teeth? The answer has more implications and links to behavioral science than you may think. See what some researchers say in an article and accompanying video about this debate by heading here: Dental Patient News.
