Are you interested in keeping your smile healthy and bright throughout your life? If so, then you know flossing is the key to fantastic oral health. Our team here at Sharpe Dental Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, cares for your oral health, which is why we are happy to give you this information on flossing and how to keep your smile clean and healthy.
Cavities can strike anywhere you have tooth enamel. That means along with your gum line, between your teeth, and even the outside top and sides of your teeth are at risk. Brushing your teeth with a toothbrush twice a day for two minutes a day will help the sides and top of your teeth, which leaves between the teeth and deep along the gum line still exposed.
Flossing is made to keep your teeth risk-free from cavities in those hard-to-reach places. There are different types of floss to help slide between your teeth and gently clean along the gum line to help your teeth stay healthy. Flossing each night before bed will greatly reduce these risks of cavities and keep your teeth in tip-top shape.
