Why Should I Floss My Teeth?

Posted .

Your dentist, Dr. Douglas Hauck, asks you to include flossing in your regular oral hygiene routine. This means you should floss at least once a day. This is recommended because flossing can benefit you in a myriad of ways. To help you understand a little more, our dental team will be happy to tell you all about the benefits of flossing in Newport Beach, California, which are:

-Flossing can clean the cracks between your teeth. This can help you prevent major dental issues, like gum disease. This is because it removes plaque that lives between the teeth and along the gumline. Gum disease is a serious dental issue that can destroy the smile.

-Flossing can help you prevent dangerous health issues, like heart disease and stroke. This is because gum disease has a relationship with these major health issues. If you prevent gum disease by flossing, you can have a better overall health.

-Flossing can help you have a more appealing smile and a pristine breath. This is because flossing removes food particles from between your teeth. Those food particles can cause embarrassing food-stuck-in-the-smile moments when you’re socializing and can even cause odorous breath.
