Why Does My Dentist Want Me to Floss My Teeth?

Posted .

Flossing is vital. In fact, it’s so vital that your dentist, Dr. A. Agustin Vega, strongly recommends flossing at least once a day. Now, this might not matter to you if you don’t fully understand the importance of flossing. In fact, you’ll likely place flossing on the bottom of your to-do list. This can be dangerous for the teeth, gums and smile. So, our dentist is happy to help you know the importance of flossing by listing the reasons to floss here:

-Flossing can help you prevent gum disease (Because it removes the plaque from between the teeth and along the gumline)

-Flossing can help you prevent cavities (Because it removes the cavity-causing bacteria from the crevices of the smile)

-Flossing can remove food particles stuck between your teeth (This can help you avoid embarrassing food-stuck-in-the-smile moments)

-Flossing can give you a pristine breath (Because it eliminates bad breath-causing bacteria and substances)

-Flossing can help you have a better overall health (Because the mouth and body are connected)

-Flossing can help you stay kissable (No one wants to kiss someone with missing teeth, food stuck in their smile or bad breath)

-Flossing can save you money (Because it helps you prevent dental issues down the road that can be costly to fix)
