Dental Arts Group FLOSS AND LIVE LONGER On the face of it, ossing our teeth helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease by removing the bacteria-laden lm (plaque) that continually builds up on teeth. As a result, people who oss may avoid one of the primary causes of tooth loss. As it turns out, regular ossing may prevent another type of loss. Recent research shows that periodontal disease is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and even death. A study of 5,600 healthy individuals in a retirement community found that nightly ossing was associated with a 30% lower risk of dying over the course of a decade. Flossing at other times of the day, or not at all, produced no such bene t. If you are interested in keeping your mouth and teeth healthy, remember that carefully performed home oral hygiene is key to success. At DENTAL ARTS GROUP, well be happy to demonstrate good ossing and brushing techniques that will help you maintain a healthy smile between routine dental checkups. For an appointment for family dental care, please call us at 401-521-3661. Our full-service dental of ce is conveniently located at 1136 Hartford Ave., Johnston. We accept most insurance plans. P.S. It takes less than two minutes to oss your teeth, and the health bene ts of doing so are nearly incalculable.
