For many of us, flossing is little more than an annoying practice the dentist nags us to do. It’s not fun, it’s easy to forget, and because there’s no instant gratification to doing it, we often just don’t see the point. However, if you’re willing to add a couple of minutes to your daily brushing routine, flossing can pay off in long-term benefits to your dental health. Let’s look at 6 health benefits that daily flossing provides.
One of the most common questions dental patients want to know is how often they should brush their teeth. Many people have formed a habit of brushing once a day, usually in the morning, and often after breakfast, to help them have fresher breath during the day. However, tooth brushing is about more than avoiding embarrassment from bad breath at the office or at school—it’s about keeping your teeth healthy and reducing your risk for cavities and gum disease. So how often should you brush your teeth daily to maintain the best dental health?
