The Importance of Brushing and Flossing

You know that you are supposed to brush and floss on a regular basis, but do you know why? These healthy habits are important for reducing plaque formation that can lead to serious dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease.

As discussed in this video, brushing and flossing are both essential for optimal dental health. Proper brushing removes plaque-causing particles leftover from food and drinks from the surfaces of the teeth. Flossing removes particles that brushing cannot get, such as those stuck in between teeth.

Improve your daily dental habits by choosing a toothbrush with soft bristles and replacing it every three to four months. You should also purchase floss regularly so you can keep up with daily flossing. Schedule regular appointments with a family dentist to make sure your habits are protecting your teeth and gums!
