Bacteria tend to lurk in places where the toothbrush and toothpaste cannot reach. These places are in between your teeth. Therefore, it is extremely important that you floss your teeth daily.
The Frankel Dentistry staff recommends keeping your floss in the shower, that way you will see it daily and remember to take the extra three minutes to clean between your teeth. Regardless of where you store your floss, however, there are a few techniques to remember when flossing your teeth. First, use approximately 18" of floss. Wrap the floss snuggly around your index fingers, leaving about a 2" opening to work with. Then, using a gentle side-to-side motion, guide the floss between the teeth. Make sure you pull the floss tightly in a C-shape motion to wrap around all surfaces of your tooth. Additionally, slide the floss under and around the gum line several times to remove food and bacteria. Finally, unwind the floss to a fresh section as you make your way throughout your mouth.
I'm very grateful. I came here today, I've had years of dental problems. I came in on an emergency. Just the way they were so gentle and helpful with this procedure is greatly appreciated and I thank you.
Very professional, positive experience having my teeth cleaned. From the friendly greeting by the receptionist, to the assistant who escorted me to my room, to the hygienist who cleaned my teeth--and the final check-in by Dr. Frankel, I felt well treated and in great hands.
Excellent as always. My wife & I have been going to Frankel's since the late '60's, and have no plans to change.
Thanks to the amazing staff who did an Awesome job at making my 5 yr olds first experience with a filling a positive one. The first thing she said when she was finished was "everyone is so nice."
Everyone at the office was smiling, respectful and very nice. They called you by your first name and shook your hand. I highly recommend Dr. Frankel and his staff.
There is no doubt in my mind that Frankel Dentistry sets the standard for quality and courteous dental care. I have not yet been disappointed by the care I have received in any of my visits.
