Your periodontist, Dr. Rafla, strongly encourages you to floss your teeth at least once a day as part of a top-notch oral hygiene routine. Flossing is very important for your smile and oral health. Do you ever wonder why? Well, our team is happy to tell you why. There are many reasons why you should floss your teeth. Those reasons are:

– Flossing can help you prevent gum disease (Because it removes the plaque from between the teeth and along the gumline)

– Flossing can help you prevent cavities (Because it removes the cavity-causing bacteria from the crevices of the smile)

– Flossing can remove food particles stuck between your teeth (This can help you avoid embarrassing food-stuck-in-the-smile moments)

– Flossing can freshen your breath (Because it removes bacteria that cause bad breath)

– Flossing can help you have a better overall health (Because the mouth and body are connected. When you care for the smile, you care for your overall body)

– Flossing can help you stay kissable (Because no one wants to kiss someone with food stuck in their teeth and odorous breath)

– Flossing can save you money (Because it can help you prevent dental problems that can be costly to treat)
