Why Scraping is Better for Flossing Than Sawing Motions

Posted on 9/21/2021 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
One of the dirtiest places in your mouth is in between your teeth. Bacteria gather here easily as your toothbrush cannot reach these spaces. It is important to floss every day. However, there are several methods used to floss. Improper flossing could make matters worse. What is the proper way to remove food debris and plaque from in between your teeth? How to Floss Your Teeth It is important to remember the function of flossing. You are flossing your teeth to remove plaque from the surface of your tooth. In order to do so, the floss must scape the surface of your tooth. If you place the dental floss in between your teeth and gently glide the floss up and down against your tooth, you will remove the food debris and bacteria between your teeth.

Posted on 9/6/2021 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
An abscessed tooth is often the result of a bacterial infection on the interior of your tooth. Specifically, the abscess is a pocket of pus that forms inside your tooth.

The Roof of Your Mouth Needs to Be Brushed Too

Posted on 8/23/2021 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
Brushing your teeth is one of the most important things you could do for your oral health. It is also important to floss daily, eat a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables, and get your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year. Most people have a good idea of how to brush their teeth, and we want to expand upon that knowledge. Brushing Your Teeth the Right Way We suggest patients brush their teeth for at least two minutes per session. That can seem like a long time for young children, so we recommend using a timer to help them understand the importance of brushing their teeth for two minutes. During that brushing session, it is important to establish a routine. Do you start brushing on top or the bottom teeth? It really does not matter, as long as you are consistent and give each tooth surface some attention. Did you know that it is also important to brush the roof of your mouth? It is important to brush all the surfaces in your mouth. Your brushing routine should include...
