The importance of flossing

22 December 2014, Dabur Dental Team

Flossing provides care and cleans the areas between your teeth that a tooth brush cannot reach. Food particles can get locked in between the gaps and a tooth brush alone cannot remove them. Thus, by reaching these tough spots, flossing helps in preventing gum diseases and swelling by getting rid of pieces of food and plaque between your teeth. It also saves your teeth from discoloration, staining as well cavities. Read on to know why flossing is such a must to avoid dental problems.

  • Flossing Prevents Tartar Build-Up
    Flossing allows you to remove the plaque that causes tartar while it's in its early form. Since plaque doesn't harden into tartar until it's been undisturbed for a period of time, regular flossing can keep build-up from happening.
  • Flossing Helps Prevent Other Diseases
    The bacteria that flourish in an unhealthy mouth can harm the rest of the body, leading to heart disease, diabetes and respiratory illness. Flossing only takes a few minutes every day but can have huge long-term health benefits.
  • Flossing Keeps The Gums Healthy
    Poor dental hygiene often leads to Gingivitis, a mild form of gum disease. Gingivitis can cause tender gums, swollen or soft gums, bleeding gums, red gums, bad breath and eventually leads to pain. Periodontal disease is the advancement of Gingivitis. When teeth are left untreated, periodontal disease starts and the gums begin to recede from the teeth and the spaces that form can become infected. Without treatment the teeth may eventually become loose and might have to be removed.
  • Flossing Reduces Cavities and Bad Breath
    Without flossing, cavities can start to form in between your teeth where your brush cannot reach and cause pain, bad breath and sensitivity. Flossing can help prevent bad breath. If bacteria and food particles are left in between your teeth, they can actually cause really bad breath.
  • Flossing is More Effective Than Brushing Alone
    A toothbrush works by physically removing plague from the teeth with the help of soft bristles. Floss removes plaque from the tight spaces between the teeth and under the gums. Not flossing can cause an increase of cavities in the areas your tooth brush cannot reach. Without flossing your teeth can start to stain which keeps them from looking bright, white and clean.
