Excellent Reasons to Floss Every Day

Black haired Beauty

Are you leaving dental floss out of your daily routine? If so, you’re skipping an important step that could save you from the time, discomfort, and expense of serious dental problems. Most dentists recommend that you brush your teeth at least one time per day, and ideally, twice per day.

Just how important is flossing? According to WebMD, flossing takes care of 40 percent of the job of removing plaque and bacteria from your teeth. That means that if you’re only brushing your teeth, you’re only getting your teeth 60 percent clean. The remaining plaque and bacteria can cause tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss. Gum disease can also trigger health problems throughout your body. Gum disease has been linked with heart disease, respiratory problems, and other inflammatory issues.

If you can’t get the hang of flossing, your Oak Creek Dental Care dentist is here to help. Ask for a flossing demonstration during your next preventative care dentistry appointment. Remember that we also offer a long list of cosmetic dentistry services and IV sedation when necessary. Make your appointment at our Columbus, OH dental office today by calling (614) 882-5525.
