Removing The Yuck

Posted on Behalf of Blue Sky Dental Group

Jacksonville FL Family DentistDo lurking germs gross anyone else out? Remember reading about bacteria and germs that hide in some coffee machines? How about in bathrooms? You can’t see the germs on the surfaces of the door handles, but you just know they’re there. Maybe you use your sleeves or a paper towel to cover your hands when opening and closing doors in public restrooms. Do you tear apart coffee machines to get to the bottom of any germs that are hiding in there?

Ridding and protecting ourselves from yucky things is fairly common. Some people think about it much more than others. And for everyone, his or her germ obsessions vary. Its kind of funny, there’s some people who will share their drink with a friend, but they may be freaked out when it comes time to touch the same gas pump buttons that everyone else uses. We all have our “things.”

We all fear the unseen of germs and bacteria in some shape or form. Did you know that those yucky germs and bacteria reside in your mouth as well? That bacterium comes in the form of plaque. Plaque is invisible masses of harmful germs that reside in the mouth and stick to your teeth. The best way to remove plaque is by flossing. Flossing removes a large majority of plaque in your mouth. After flossing, it’s time to brush away the remainder of the plaque. Give your mouth a fresh rinse, and you’re on your way to removing lurking yuck in your mouth.

It’s also important to schedule routine cleanings with Blue Sky Dental Group. We will help your mouth feel fresh, clean and happy!
