• Are You Flossing Properly?

    While you may associate your sedation dentist with procedures for dental implants and wisdom teeth removal, he can also treat issues caused by poor oral hygiene through restorations and periodontics. To help avoid the need for these treatments, it’s essential that you floss your teeth at least once per day.

    Watch this video for some tips on proper flossing technique. Start by wrapping about 18” of floss around one middle finger, and the rest around the opposite. Next, use your thumb and index fingers to hold a small section of the floss, and then gently insert the floss between your teeth.

    It’s important to practice good oral hygiene and to visit your regular office of family dentistry in NYC twice per year for checkups. If you’re looking for an experienced and compassionate dentist, then call Dr. Jeffrey Rabinowitz today at (212) 826-2322 to schedule your appointment.
