Carriage Place Dental Efficacy of Flossing 
July 2016

In regards to the recent media release about the efficacy of flossing: We as hygienists and dentists anecdotally see the benefits of flossing daily. Patients who are flossing effectively daily have less gum inflammation, decrease or cessation of bleeding, reduction of redness and fewer cavities between teeth.
The following is a statement from the American Academy of Periodontology- " Because the development of periodontal disease is slow in nature and because a variety of factors can impact its progression,... studies that examine the efficacy of daily flossing are best conducted over a number of years & among a large population. Much of the current evidence does not utilize a large sample size or examine gum health over a significant amount of time. Additionally , many of the existing studies do not measure true markers of periodontal health such as inflammation or clinical attachment loss. In the absence of quality research, patients should continue to include flossing as part of their daily oral hygiene habit."


We provide a range of dental services from family dentistry, preventive dentistry and fillings to root canals, cosmetic procedures and implant dentistry.

Well, our Second Annual Dentistry From The Heart event has come and gone! Once again, it was an awesome day of teamwork, smiles, and great experiences. Dr. Pyke and her amazing team of volunteers (including Dr. Lance Schaefer and Dr. Matt Moore) saw 69 patients and provided over $16,500 worth of free dentistry. We opened our doors at 7:30 a.m. Friday, May 1st and worked straight through until 6 p.m. We are so grateful to be able to use our skills and time to give back to our community, and we have to give a huge shout out to our sponsors whose generous contributions allowed us to do so:

--Patterson Dental and Henry Schein Dental, who donated filling material and other dental supplies.
--Crest Oral-B and the New Brunswick Dental Society, who donated toothbrushes, floss, and other oral health items for our patient “goody bags”.
--Ross Drug, who donated medications and offered a discount on prescriptions.
--Pita Pit, who donated lunch for the volunteers and coupons for the goody bags.
--Evolve Fitness at Kingswood, who donated free fitness coupons for the goody bags.
--Tim Hortons, who supplied free coffee and Timbits for the patients as they waited for treatment.
--Coveys, who donated posters for the event.

And most of all, thank you to the patients—you were so wonderful to treat and patient throughout the long day!

The most exciting news to come out of the day is that several other dentists in Fredericton area are thinking of hosting their own events next year, so the movement is definitely snowballing. Together, we can greatly improve the oral health of our community!
