Our Answers To 4 Common Dental FAQs

EVER HAVE A QUESTION for our team that you were too embarrassed to ask? Or maybe you just forgot about it until the time was past? Well, we wanted to take a minute to answer a couple of your most common questions.

Q: How do I take care of bad breath?

A: Bad breath can usually be solved with good oral hygiene. Just don’t forget to brush your tongue every time you brush your teeth.

Q: Do all wisdom teeth have to be removed?

A: Most people will need to have their wisdom teeth removed at some point. The main danger of wisdom teeth is that they become impacted and grow sideways. They can also cause crowding and infection in your back teeth. Here at Dental Partners of Boston, we’re very experienced with wisdom teeth removal. We’re happy to answer any of your questions throughout the process.

Q: Why is flossing necessary?

A: About 35% of your teeth go uncleaned without flossing. The plaque left behind damages both your teeth and your gums. Gum disease is outrageously common and it’s the biggest contributor to tooth loss in adults, so make sure that you keep your gums healthy by flossing every day!
