Why you should floss every day

Whenever you talk to a family dentist in the area of Webster, TX, you will hear routinely that regular brushing and flossing is part of keeping the smile healthy between dental visits. The teeth are being used constantly, coated with saliva and food and acids that can develop into problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. While the teeth are made to be extremely strong, they are still susceptible to damage that can impact their function and health. 

The importance of flossing every day 

While the toothbrush can remove food particles, acids, and plaques from the surfaces of the teeth, it cannot get in-between the teeth nearly as effectively as dental floss. This is why flossing at least once a day is strongly encouraged to achieve better oral health and wellness. It takes just a few minutes, but can help prevent many problems including: 

  • Bleeding gums
  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Emergency dental trips
  • Plaque/calculus development

How to floss properly 

During your routine visits with Drs. Piyuse Das, An Pham, and Grisel Acevedo Rivera, you can speak to our team about the best ways to floss. It is important that you do so properly to avoid getting more food particles trapped between the teeth. Never reuse floss and be sure to wrap it around each tooth in a C shape before moving to the next space. If you are struggling with flossing, talk to your dentist about some tips and tricks to make it easier. When done correctly, it can have a positive impact on overall oral health and wellness for children and adults, and can be a simple part of good oral hygiene habits at home.
