The Benefits of Flossing

Trying to get those perfect looking teeth and finding it hard? This may be because you are not flossing your teeth! A lot of people don’t understand the benefits flossing brings to your teeth. You may be brushing your teeth everyday, but going that extra step to floss can make your teeth shine. Here are some benefits you can gain from flossing your teeth.

While brushing your teeth cleans it up pretty good, your toothbrush is limited in what it can reach. Floss can clean between your teeth and under the gums. Tiny food particles can get stuck in your gums. Getting these particles out is crucial for your gums health. If left in there, this could cause gum diseases like gingivitis. This is the first stage of a gum disease where the gums are red and swollen. This could lead to much more severe gum diseases. Utilizing both your toothbrush and floss can really help you keep your teeth as clean as can be.

One key benefit of flossing is avoiding tartar buildup. Tartar buildup is when plaque hardens around your gum line. Once the plaque has hardened and turned into tartar, it is difficult to remove. Without professional help, it is impossible to remove tartar around your gums. In order to prevent a visit to the doctor, flossing is your best option. It will save you a lot of money to floss every day. This will save you a potential cost to the doctor. Flossing while the plaque is still soft makes it easier to remove it around your gum line.

We hope we were able to stress the importance of flossing your teeth in this article. Take care of your teeth and floss them every day. That way your teeth can be healthy and you can feel good about your smile!

Dear Dr. Scott and Staff,

I would like to thank you very much for the kindness and generosity in repairing my front tooth on Friday, May 29th, and getting me in on such short notice. You were truly a lifesaver, “Thanks again”!

Professionalism and a warm enviroment…

As Dr. Scott filled a cavity, I couldn’t help but recall my experiences with other dentists- from the metropolitan New York area. Dr. LaClair’s professional manner with his staff, his praise to his assistants, and concern for me projected a warm, caring atmosphere. He is obviously well trained, my guess is he graduated the top of his class. The new office is dazzling. I’m sure it could win design awards. My sincere thanks…
