Do I have to floss every day?

Most healthcare workers in the dental field recommend daily flossing.  Daily flossing enables you to clean and remove plaque (the sticky film that builds up on teeth), which turns in to tartar and calculus, in areas that cannot be easily reached with a conventional tooth brush.  This will help prevent, minimize bleeding gums, and possible tooth loss from gum disease.

Flossing not only reduces cavities where teeth touch each other, but it contributes to improving your overall health.

There is increasing evidence that healthy gums and teeth are helpful in maintaining a healthy heart, and your blood vessel system throughout your whole body.

Daily flossing is great tool to achieve optimal dental health.  See your dentist and hygienist to review your techniques and learn about new floss aids to keep your smile looking great!
