3 Benefits of Flossing on a Daily Basis

National Flossing Day

National Flossing Day is on November 29, and if people don’t know why they should be flossing, they should take the time to find out why.

1. Clean Between Your Teeth
The best thing about using dental floss is that you’re able to clean where brushing just can’t reach, and that’s in between your teeth. If you don’t properly clean between your teeth, you’re risking bacteria and plaque buildup, which can lead to a wide range of dental problems.

2. Protect Your Gums
Many people may not realize that when you use dental floss every day, you’re protecting your gums. Food particles can get stuck right where the gums and teeth meet, and this is where flossing comes in handy. Also, flossing cleans better in between teeth than brushing, so make sure to floss either right before or right after brushing your teeth.

3. Keep Dental Care Costs Affordable
Everyone knows that dental care can cost a lot of money, especially when your dentist needs to perform work on your teeth due to tooth decay. The sooner you begin to use dental floss, the sooner you’ll likely see your dental care costs become more affordable over time. When you use floss, you’ll be able avoid dental problems that could cost you a lot of money to correct.

It’s never too late to start using dental floss. If you want to protect your teeth against a wide range of dental issues, then you should add flossing to your daily dental care routine. November 29 is quickly approaching, so there’s no better time than right now to start flossing.
