A critical but often missing piece of dental care is daily flossing of your teeth.
Floss is an inter-dental cleaner designed to especially clean the tight spaces between your teeth.
Flossing is all about removing dental plaque early on and is an effective way to remove plaque.
- Flossing releases tiny particles of food that can get lodged in the small tight spaces not reached by your toothbrush.
- Flossing gets at the dental plaque lodged at the gap between the base of the teeth and gums.
A dental plaque will break down gum tissue and increases your risk for gum disease.
Tartar accumulates and leads to gingivitis if not dealt with promptly. Gingivitis causes gums to become red, tender, irritated, and inflamed and is the first stage of gum disease.
When dental plaque piles up, it contributes to bad breath, hardens on your teeth, becomes tartar, and eventually causes tooth decay. Do not let plaque accumulate between your teeth because bacteria-laden tartar and plaque spread deeper below the gum line. This causes periodontal disease, tooth, and bone loss
Proper oral hygiene is crucial to your overall health and well-being.You can help to prevent cavities, banish tartar buildup, and halt periodontal disease and tooth decay by committing to flossing as a regular daily dental care routine.
Correct dental care practices of daily brushings, flossing, and regular dental checkups pay smile- dividends in the long run. You will gain many other health benefits from limiting inflammatory and cardiovascular disease conditions and preventing the respiratory illness.
