Good health is typically described as being able to live a full life with the absence of discomfort or disease. Low-carb diets, KETO, counting calories, drinking water, exercise – a huge amount of attention is given to all of these to promote better health. Fad diets have been around for decades, and they are constantly changing to give people a new fix to promote better health and a superior life. Yet, do you know that there is something simple that you can do, starting today, that can help you on your way to better health? It is something so simple that most people tend to overlook its benefits. In fact, it is something that most people would never even think about when setting a goal for better health.

Flossing teeth has been around for hundreds of years. Archeologists have found evidence that people used to use animal hair to remove debris from their teeth. Aren’t you glad that we have better options today?! But the fact that people have been using tools to clean their teeth for hundreds of years lets us understand how important clean teeth are.

While our great-great ancestors may not have understood the true importance of dental floss – they simply wanted a means to remove food particles stuck in their teeth – today, we have the insight and knowledge of how beneficial flossing is.

Dental floss is a tool that helps remove bacteria-laden plaque from the gum line. Plaque is a very sticky substance that is not easily removed, which is why your dentist tells you that you should brush and floss daily. In fact, if you had to choose between brushing and flossing, your dentist would tell you that flossing your teeth is more important! Allowing plaque to build up at the gum line of your mouth is dangerous to your oral health and your overall health.

The gum line is living tissue within your body, and all living tissues inside your body are connected. Any infection within your mouth can easily and quickly travel through your blood stream to other vital organs and systems. People with diabetes, heart conditions, and women who are pregnant are especially susceptible to ill-effects of gum disease. Those who do not suffer from serious health conditions can continue to promote a healthier lifestyle by flossing. They are helping to prevent conditions by simply taking better care of their oral hygiene.

At Mansouri Family Dental Care & Associates, we want to encourage all of our patients to floss daily. By simply adding this small habit into your daily routine, you can floss your way to better health.

If you are looking for a great dental experience, I would have to suggest Mansouri Family Dental Care. I have been coming here for quite sometime, and I have been incredibly pleased with the kindness and care received from this professional group. Before coming to Mansouri Family Dental, I did not have very positive dental experiences. I like this group because I always feel at ease. I go in knowing that the experience is going to be great.

A wise man once said, "There are 3 very important friends in ones life....Dentist, Lawyer, and Mechanic." Mansouri Family Dental care is no exception, they are Crème de la Crème! My mouth had an early start on WW3, but the war was thwarted before any real life havoc could grip its deadly disease on my health! For a very long time I was battling with a Root Canal ed tooth and it was constantly getting infected....at times the infection would creep its way into my lymph nodes where severe infection would occur and my body would become lethargic and continue its endless fight against proliferating bacteria inside my gum line. I was in dire need of help and feeling miserable and helpless. When things could not get any worse....the permanent Crown broke off taking with it the top of the entire tooth only leaving behind the deep embedded roots inside my jaw. There is nothing I have endured more than these roots driving me insane. I was broke, a student, and unsure of how I could resolve the issue. I contacted my wonderful friend Dodd Mansouri whom is the hygienist at the Mansouri offices and he assured me that all was well and that I was in good hands. God bless his heart!!! First, they quickly sprung into Hero action and personally contacted my Private Dental Insurance company to check and make sure that my procedures would be covered, when it came back that I did not have full coverage.....Mansouri office worked alongside me and helped me upgrade my insurance to full coverage...so my shallow pockets wouldn't burn to the ground. That was far too kind of them to chose to help rather than having me fix the issue myself like a chicken with his head cutoff! So the day finally came and I was due to make a grand appearance at the Cumberland High-rise location, and let me tell you....their offices is nothing short of Grand!! I mean I would literally just pay to go up there and look out through their windows with its mesmerizing views of all Atlanta, just WOW! Now to the matter at hand, after Dr.Mansouris' inspection of my warring mouth....he told me that the rotten tooth had also brought about damage to the tooth behind it and to the tooth in front of it. He said that the tooth behind it seemed far too damaged and that the best route of course was to also root canal that tooth as well. However I told him that I wanted to live to be a 100 and that I needed all my teeth and already having lost one was bad enough. I made the suggestion that if it would be possible if he could try and save that tooth instead of Root Canal. Now, even though his suggestion was the right one he did not try to convince me to have it root canal ed but instead he respected my wishes to want to save the tooth and he said that he would try his best and that if in the near future I would have any issues and pain with the tooth...that then we would take his course of action. Surely enough, he was able to save both tooth. (This review is incomplete, for remainder please check Yelp!)
