Up to now there hasn't been one, but I thought it was high time to have one. Accordingly, from now on, July will be Preventive Dentistry Month (at least in my N.Y.C. Dental office) . To celebrate, my office will offer a gift of a free electric tooth brush, to each new patient having a full set of radiographs, checkup and cleaning in the month of July.
Most people will do a better job cleaning their teeth with a good electric toothbrush than they will with a good manual brush. The repeated reciprocating rotary movement of electric toothbrush cleans faster and more thoroughly than can be accomplished with a manual brush by most patients,
Now that school is out it's a great time for families to schedule their check ups and cleanings. Why not get teeth in their best shape and receive a new electric tooth brush as well? It is my hope that these brushes will help New Yorkers keep their smiles in tip top shape and avoid some of the problems associated with excess dental plaque.
