Did you know that flossing can not only reduce gum disease but help reverse it? It’s amazing how powerful flossing is to positive oral health. Removing particles from between your teeth will help keep your mouth clean from bacteria. Flossing can also help prevent cavities by removing food particles and plaque buildup in those hard-to-reach places. In fact, floss is the only tool efficient enough to deeply clean your teeth, providing you with excellent oral health.
One of the most common reasons people avoid flossing is because of the soreness they experience or because of their bleeding gums. It is important to remember that if you make flossing a regular habit, the bleeding or soreness goes away because your teeth and gums become stronger and healthier. If you have sore and bleeding gums when you floss, that is a sign that you need to floss more. With time and consistency, flossing regularly will lead you to positive oral health.
