Why Is Flossing So Important?

We know how important brushing is to our teeth, but do you know why flossing is important to the health of our mouth?

Unfortunately, there are a lot of people that think brushing is enough to keep our mouth healthy from bacteria and plaque, but this is not the case. In order to clean your mouth properly, brushing and flossing both need to be utilized.

Bacteria can easily get in between your teeth and around your gums. If this bacteria remains in your mouth, the chances of cavities and gum disease increase. Flossing reaches areas of your teeth that your toothbrush can not. In order to properly clean your mouth, flossing needs to be part of your dental health routine.
