Every time you visit the dentist for a checkup, there’s one question you’re certain to hear:
“Have you been flossing regularly?” For a lot of patients, the answer isn’t always yes.
Many people make a point of brushing their teeth twice a day, but fewer people follow
the recommendation to floss at least once a day.
What people don’t realize is that this step plays an important role in dental health. The
toothbrush only cleans the top and outer surface of the teeth and gums. Floss is an
interdental cleaner, it is designed to clean tighter spaces between the teeth and the gums.
These are places that a toothbrush can’t reach. Here are five additional reasons why
flossing is important.
1.Flossing and Brushing are more effective that brushing alone
2.Flossing Protects your gums
3.Flossing can save you a lot of money
4.Flossing Help prevent other diseases
5.Flossing prevent tartar buildup
When it comes to your health, flossing your teeth is more important than brushing.
Ask your dentist for help if you don’t know the proper way to floss or if you need help
