If you don’t clean between your teeth, food debris and plaque can build up and cause gum inflammation, tooth decay and bad breath. Dental floss is a soft, thin thread that can be used daily to remove any unwelcome deposits.

Treatment steps

Don’t worry if you experience a little bleeding and tenderness when first flossing, this should soon diminish. And if you find it a little tricky, there are flossing aids available that can help make the cleaning process much easier.

Flossing can help in all sorts of ways, including improving your breath and the appearance of your teeth. It can also be beneficial for the rest of your body too as poor dental health has been linked to serious conditions, such as strokes and heart disease.

The whole team at wood lane has made me feel so welcome. However my dentist is a genius. My teeth feel better than they have felt in years. His kindness and patience seem unending. I have already made the rest of my family sign up with the practice.

The practice was recommended to me by a relative and though I live some distance away I would travel twice the distance to keep seeing my dentist. He always explains everything he does and makes the whole experience pain free and dare I say even pleasant. He has a lovely team behind him which only adds to my pleasure at being a patient at this practice.

This is one of the best dental practices that I have ever been to. Me and my whole family now use the wood lane practice, and all of us are very pleased with the service that we frequently recieve!
