BENEFITS OF FLOSSING TEETH

By: Smileway Dental

When it comes to oral health habits, many people regard flossing as an optional addition to brushing. Most dentist would recommended to floss daily in addition to brushing twice daily. Flossing is important because toothbrush is unable to clean the areas in between the teeth.

Here are a few reasons why you should backup your daily brushing routine with flossing.

Preventative oral care – There are a lot of bacteria in our mouth. More so after eating. When done properly, flossing helps to remove food and bacteria from the areas that brushing cannot access. Regular flossing also prevents bacteria build up that eventually turn to plaque and tartar.

Prevent tartar build-up – When plaque is left unremoved, it can harden into tartar. Daily flossing will help to remove plaque from between your teeth and prevent tartar formation at the gum line.

Reduces bad breath – Brushing your teeth two or three times a day and using mouthwash can certainly help. Food debris trapped in between teeth and in the gum line may contain bacteria that cause an unpleasant odour. Daily flossing can help to remove the smelly odour from your mouth.

I can say from my own experience as a doctor, they are good. Appointments are kinda hard to get. Do you know why? You get what you want and what you need. Most likely you’ll leave the clinic with a smile on your face.
