Brushing your teeth with the right technique is the most important step in maintaining good oral health. Please make sure you brush your teeth with soft or extra soft tooth brush to prevent damage to the gums or thinning of the enamel over time. I hope you find this video helpful.
Using the string floss effectively is the key to preventing those cavities in between the teeth. It is all about scrubbing the sides :)
This video goes over effective string flosses that Dr. Park recommends.
January 2019 was a significant time where Dr. Nomura retired and Dr. Park took over the dental office, creating the culture of Team Park. We had an amazing year, and hope to continue serving the community many more years to come.
