Sounds unnecessary but it’s extremely important for your health (not just oral health)!
1) It protects your gums
Flossing reaches areas your toothbrush can’t. These are prime areas for bacteria to grow and it is essential to ensure they are looked after too. Plaque and tartar build up can lead to gingivitis – an inflammation of the gums. Flossing helps reduce such build up.
2) Helps prevent other diseases
Bad oral health doesn’t just stay in the mouth. Bad oral hygiene can also lead to other ailments such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s respiratory illnesses and diabetes. Why? Because bacteria from the mouth can also spread to other parts of your body.
3) Saves you money
Good oral hygiene can save you a lot of money in the long run. If you maintain your teeth and gums well, the chances of a root canal and other dental treatment are several reduced. Helping you save money and time in the long run.
