3 Vital Reasons to Floss Regularly

reasons to floss your teeth

Flossing your teeth isĀ  one of those things you should do every single day in order to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Too many people skip flossing, though. In this post from Jeff Gray DDS | Espire Dental in La Mesa we’ll give you three very good reasons why you should make it part of your regular dental health regimen.

1. Helps Fight Cavities

Every time we eat, food debris is left in the mouth. It accumulates in between teeth without us always being aware. Flossing gets rid of it and helps reduce the amount of plaque buildup.

2. Helps prevent gum disease

Plaque buildup also increases the risk of gum disease, a leading cause of tooth loss. Flossing is a great way to clear it out.

3. Freshens your breath

All that gunk between your teeth can lead to bad breath, and no one wants that! Brushing alone isn’t enough: floss it away.
