The Real Benefits of Flossing

In the past few years, flossing has come under fire by those doubting its efficacy in a daily dental health routine. And while the benefits may not be as extensive as was once thought, flossing does a lot for your general mouth health. If there was ever any doubt, here are some reasons that flossing is so important:

Prevention of Bleeding Gums

Have you ever noticed that if you haven’t flossed for awhile, the first time you do they often bleed? This is caused by gum diseases, which can worsen over time. When you floss regularly, your gums tend to be firm, pink, and no longer bleed – that is what healthy gums are supposed to look like.

Getting That Hard to Reach Food & Bacteria
Every day, food and bacteria collect in the crevaces between our teeth. While brushing alone isn’t enough to remove most of it, flossing allows us to get in the hard to reach space and remove much more of this harmful detritus.


Avoiding Gingivitis
Since flossing regularly is a big part of removing the bacteria and plaque we just mentioned, it’s also an important preventative measure when it comes to gum diseases like gingivitis. While gingivitis is quite common, flossing is the best way to keep it at bay, and prevent further problems.

Floss for your Whole Mouth Health!
Now that you know how important flossing can be, add it to your daily dental routine to get the full benefits. If you’re new to flossing, or want to ensure that you’re doing it correctly, use our guide to floss effectively.
