Flossing Daily Will Help You Maintain Superior Oral Care

Are you leaving yourself vulnerable to unexpected tooth decay? You may feel confident in your daily oral care practices, as you brush regularly, watch out for sugar, and attend regular dental exams. Unfortunately, if you fail to floss, you leave areas of teeth insufficiently protected. Flossing comes highly recommended because it gives you a means of addressing hard to reach spaces between teeth. If you fail to floss, you leave these areas vulnerable to bacteria, and an accumulation of food particles. Even thorough brushing can fail to reach certain areas of your smile – if you want to give your teeth a total clean, make sure you floss.

Improving Your Defense Against Tartar, Gum Disease, And Cavities

Flossing protects you against the myriad threats menacing your smile. Of course, keeping your teeth cleaner means avoiding cavities. It is also recommended because by flossing, you can avoid letting tartar form between teeth. Tartar is a stubborn, hardened plaque that will persist even when you brush and floss. Removing plaque deposits before this hardening takes place offers important protection. Keeping these spaces between teeth can also help you defend against gum disease.

A Cleaner Smile Means A Lower Risk For Needing Restorative Dental Work

By brushing, flossing, and undergoing regular dental cleanings, you can provide yourself serious protection against cavities. If a cavity does form, keep in mind that early treatment can limit the amount of damage your tooth ultimately experiences. Your dentist can remove the infected area, and restore your tooth with a dental filling made from composite resin.
