While floss was invented in 1815, it doesn’t get the respect it deserves in most people’s daily oral hygiene routines. Many view flossing as unnecessary and an inconvenience. Yet, if you aren’t flossing daily, you’re opening the door to a wide range of oral health complications. Adding flossing to your daily hygiene routine not only creates a cleaner, healthier smile, but also decreases your risk for developing painful dental complications, including gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. At Drs Boyd, we are committed to helping you have a healthy, long-lasting smile, which is why we encourage you to floss properly each day. (more…)

It’s that time of the year again. The days are shorter, the temperature is dropping, leaves are falling, and families are getting together to celebrate the season. A recent study revealed that more than 50% of people in the US with dental insurance never use their benefits, and insurance providers count on it. If you have dental insurance and haven’t been to our office for dental care in 2015, you’re losing money. For patients who contribute to a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and don’t use the money, that too gets absorbed at the end of the year. Don’t let your benefits go to waste. Visit our Midtown Manhattan dental practice to take full advantage of your dental health coverage in 2015, and remember, we can help you plan your FSA withholding for 2016. It needs to be set prior to December 31, 2015.
