CAUTION: MAY FLOSS AT ANYTIME AT STUBBLEFIELD DENTAL CLINIC
Have you ever sighed at the thought of Flossing and even uttered one of the many common reasons people avoid flossing their teeth all together?
My Gums Bleed When I Floss
I Forget to Floss
My Teeth or Too Close Together
Flossing Takes Too Long
I Brush My Teeth Twice a Day, Do I Really Need to Floss?
I Don’t Have Food In Between My Teeth
What if we told you flossing is an important part of your oral health? We all do things to improve our health. We exercise, avoid sugar, watch our salt intake, drink more water, take supplements, and eat a balanced diet including more broccoli and kale; BUT, flossing our teeth falls below even eating more broccoli and kale. Flossing is just as important to obtaining overall health especially oral health. Flossing regularly prevents cavities, gum disease, and the build up of plaque. Plaque contains bacteria that causes cavities and can develop into tartar. Flossing may not always be as fun as the “Flossing Dance”, but the benefits are great!
