Looking for a way to steer clear of cavities and improve your overall dental care routine? In addition to regular visits to your Northern Virginia dentist in Arlington, Purcellville (Loudoun County) or elsewhere, research done at the Sahlgrenska Academy of the University of Gothenburg in Sweden suggests that simply massaging high-fluoride toothpaste onto your teeth after lunch may provide up to four times better protection and an easy way of giving teeth a daily “third shot” of dental-protection. In the study of 16 volunteers, dental researcher Anna Nordstrom discovered that the “massage method proved to be at least as effective as a third brushing in increasing the amount of fluoride in the mouth”. Ms. Nordstrom notes however that even though the importance of brushing with high-fluoride toothpaste has played a major role in promoting dental care, this new method should not replace brushing teeth morning and evening, and that “it’s an extra” in one’s overall dental-routine.
