  1. Dental Floss


    Toledo, Ohio dentist, Dr. Jon Frankel, wants to remind folks to floss. More time at home leaves no excuses for slacking in oral hygiene. “Make it a daily practice”, states Frankel, who admits to flossing daily in the shower.

    Thorough tooth brushing and flossing disrupts the biofilm that leads to decay and gum disease. A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Important information in a time when a comprised immune system might lower resistance to viral infections.

    Daily Flossing


    The doctors, healthcare providers and staff at Frankel Dentistry are passionate about patient education. While demonstrating how to floss, it seems they learned a lot of nontraditional uses. Dental floss, it appears,  is the dental world’s version “duct tape.”

    The many uses, and reason to always have an extra roll or two available heard at this popular Ohio dental practice include:

    Securing a button on a coat or jacket.

    Slicing watermelon.

    Substituting plumbers’ putty in a pinch.

    Removing a ring stuck on a finger.

    Trussing a turkey.

    Cutting a cake.

    Sizing a ring.

    Hanging up Halloween decorations like spiders.

    Cleaning between the tines of a fork.

    Replacing a hair tie.

    Frankel Dentistry has been changing lives a smile at a time since 1946. They love what we they do and it shows. The patients, doctors, healthcare providers, and staff are always smiling (even under their masks). There is always laughter throughout the office.

  2. Never Too Early

     

    Brush This!

    Are you brushing your teeth correctly?

    It’s already Spring – you vowed to take better care of your teeth for the New Year. We all know that it’s crucial to brush your teeth in the morning and at night, but are we brushing them properly?

    Here are some best practices for brushing your teeth:
    1) Brush side to side on the outside of your teeth.
    2) Brush the inside of your teeth — this part tends to be forgotten!
    3) Brush for 2 minutes – try singing the ABC’s in your head three times. You can also break it into four parts: 30 sec outside top, 30 sec outside bottom, 30 sec inside top and 30 sec inside bottom.
    4) Apply correct pressure — not too hard, not too soft. Your pressure should feel comfortable.

    Don’t forget to floss your teeth regularly as well. Flossing and brushing go hand and hand for optimal oral hygiene
