The Importance of Flossing

March 31, 2022 0

A study by the British Dental Health Foundation one out of every three people have never flossed their teeth. It’s clear that while most of us are aware of the importance of flossing, many people simply aren’t doing it the way that they should. To correct this problem, more widespread education is needed, and it is crucial that health officials are clear about the benefits that regular flossing can have.

Flossing between the teeth is a crucial part of any good oral hygiene routine, as removing plaque can help to prevent periodontal disease. Gum disease has been linked to more widespread health conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

The good news is that it is never too late to start flossing and to reverse the negative effects of gum disease. However, the first step is being honest with your dentist and yourself about your dental hygiene routine. Your dentist or hygienist can provide advice on how to use dental floss or interdental brushes properly in order rot achieve the best possible results, so it is important to report your oral hygiene habits appropriately.

If you have questions about flossing and other ways to care for your teeth, be sure to contact Sedation and Implant Dentistry Irvine to set up an appointment.
