The Importance of Proper Flossing

Holistic dentistry Assure a Smile reminds patients of incorporating regular flossing as part of their daily dental routine.


Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2019 -- Flossing teeth before brushing is one of the many ways to maintain oral health and keep the teeth clean. By removing debris from between teeth, flossing assists tremendously in keeping the gums and teeth healthy when brushing. Regular flossing also assists with the prevention of leftover food build up, which is typically responsible for causing foul breath.

Correct flossing techniques result in getting rid of as much plaque and debris as possible without causing injury to the sensitive gums. The floss should be held tautly and gently slid up and down between the teeth below the gum line. Clean sections of the floss should be used when moving to a different tooth.

The teeth play a major role in the body, including affecting respiratory and circulatory health. Proper flossing is a major part of ensuring the body's overall well-being.
