Dental Flossing Can Reduce Future Dental Costs.
In an op-ed for Dollar Stretcher (8/4, Spieler), a dentist says that dental floss is “one of the best dental products you can buy,” aside from fluoride toothpaste and a good toothbrush. Dental floss removes bacteria that brushing cannot reach, which can save future dental costs by helping to prevent “plaque formation, gingivitis, periodontal disease, and tooth decay,” the dentist states, adding, “For healthy people, when it comes to good home dental care a simple fluoride toothpaste, a good soft bristle toothbrush, and regular use of dental floss will work wonders.”
ADA Recommends Replacing Toothbrush At Least Every Three Months.
Loop Barbados (7/28) considers when the appropriate time to replace a toothbrush is. The article reports that, “according to the American Dental Association, you should change your toothbrush about every three months or sooner if the bristles are frayed,” and replace it following “an illness because the bacteria could still be lurking there.”
