Flossing for Dental Wellness

Posted on 5/22/2023 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
Flossing for Dental WellnessFlossing is a vital component of dental treatment that's commonly forgotten. It is an easy and efficient technique for removing food debris and plaque from places between teeth that brushing alone cannot reach. This article will discuss the importance of flossing and why it should be part of every person's oral hygiene routine.

Gum disease is prevented

Gum infection is a common disorder that, if left untreated, can lead to a loss of teeth. Flossing promotes eliminating the build-up of plaque, which is a major cause of gum disease. Plaque removal can help to avoid creating gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, as well as more severe stages such as periodontitis.

Prevents Bad Breath

The bacterial build-up in the mouth is a prevalent cause of bad breath. The act of flossing eliminates food particles and plaque from between teeth, lowering the number of microbes in our mouths and eliminating foul breath.

Cavity Prevention

Flossing also helps to avoid cavities. Plaque build-up can result in the formation of cavities, which can be excruciating and costly. Plaque removal from between teeth can help you avoid cavities and safeguard good dental health.

Improves Overall Health

There is a strong link between dental health and general wellness. Poor dental hygiene can contribute to a range of health issues, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory infections. Flossing helps to remove microbes and plaque from the mouth, lowering the risk of certain conditions.

Ultimately, flossing is an important element of maintaining proper oral hygiene. It assists to prevent gum disease, bad breath, and cavities and can even enhance general health. By flossing every day and reaching out to us, you can preserve good oral health and avoid severe and painful tooth issues regarding later years. Make flossing a part of your everyday tooth care practice.

This Doctor is a true healer!

I had a wonderful opportunity to see Dr. Bembey! She really knows her stuff! I felt like she had my best interests in mind and she took her time and listened with an open mind and an open heart. I have some really tough dental issues, and she completely understood everything that I was going through and was able to guide me in the right direction. So great full of for her kindness and compassion.
