Riverside General Dentist | Why is Flossing So Important?


I bet you’re tired of listening to people constantly tell you to floss. Dentists and health specialists everywhere are trying their hardest to make flossing more prevalent in individuals’ health routines. There are a million excuse patients use as to why they lack the patience to floss, however, here at the dental office of Gerard Middleton, we urge you to take a look at the overall importance of flossing and how it can save your teeth.

  • Unlike a toothbrush, floss is able to get into hard to reach areas and clean out pieces of food or bacteria that can cause plaque to build up. If left untreated for too long, plaque may turn into cavities and worsen into gum disease.
  • Flossing promotes a healthier lifestyle and can lead to a decrease in health issues all around. A healthy mouth can help fight other issues in the body, not to mention decrease the risk of bad breath.

Flossing provides you brighter and healthier teeth while promoting a healthier lifestyle. What more could you want?
