Great Reasons to Floss Your Teeth

Three Great Reasons to Floss Your Teeth by The Yuma Dentist

Flossing is a bit of a chore. It takes extra time, and if you haven’t flossed in a while, it can even be painful. But it’s important to your dental health, so it’s no wonder our team at The Yuma Dentist is constantly reminding our patients to brush and floss.

Flossing is essential, You’ll never hear one of us say ‘don’t worry about the flossing.’ It just isn’t going to happen, and for two essential reasons. Here they are:

1. Bad Breath

Bad breath is something we all worry about. It’s part of our appearance, and we are all aware of how that can affect our relationships.

When we meet new men and women, speak with others in close quarters, or greet a partner, bad breath is on our mind. We worry about how bad breath affects first impressions.

It makes sense, then, that bad breath would be one of the things you might worry about.

Flossing is a great way to help you avert bad breath.

Flossing helps prohibit plaque buildup between your teeth. It also helps flush out pockets of bacteria. Together, plaque and bacteria can create bad breath.

To limit your chances of being caught with bad breath, floss every day.

2. Cavities

When bacteria is allowed to concentrate on your teeth, tooth decay can occur. Plaque buildup is a concentration of bacteria. When plaque is allowed to remain between your teeth it gives bacteria a chance to destroy enamel and damage your teeth. Cavities are damage to your teeth caused by bacteria.

Flossing gets between your teeth where your brush can’t get and removes plaque buildup. It also loosens pockets of bacteria that can be removed with a quick rinse.

Flossing will help you keep plaque and bacteria from developing between your teeth.

We recommend you floss every time you brush your teeth. At the very least, we encourage you to floss every day before you go to bed. Once a day is your minimum, and nighttime is a good time to floss.
