What are the benefits of flossing?Flossing and brushing are vital in ensuring that your teeth and gums are healthy. You need to floss and brush your teeth at least twice daily to keep away bad bacteria from causing tooth decay. The plaque and tartar buildup in between the teeth and combine with the bacteria. Flossing will help in removing the deposits that are stuck in between your teeth. Our dental hygienist is ready to clean your teeth during dental visits and floss them to keep them healthy.

Prevention of gingivitis

Gingivitis is a less severe gum disease, when there is a buildup of plaque and tartar it begins affecting the gums. If detected early enough gingivitis is reversible by the use of fluoride toothpaste. Regular dental checkups will help the dentist in identifying if you have gingivitis. Flossing done during dental visits will keep away gingivitis.

Prevention of periodontal gum disease

This is severe gum disease and is caused when plaque and tartar build up in between the teeth for a long. The deposits combine with bacteria causing infections s and they form an acid that wears out the enamel. When the enamel is worn out dentin is exposed and this forms cavities. The infection spreads to the pulp and the gum and you get periodontitis. This finally leads to gum receding and tooth loss.

Keeping bad breath away

Flossing the teeth regularly as well as brushing keeps bad bacteria away, bad bacteria causes the mouth to smell and you might not be comfortable in public. Regular dental visits will give our dentist a chance to floss your teeth and so you will have fresh breath always. Our dentists are available at all times a during dental checkups the teeth are cleaned.
