Why do I need to floss? Isn’t brushing enough?

Twice daily brushing is good for removing plague and food from certain areas of your teeth. But flossing allows you to get between other areas that brushing may miss. Flossing will also help prevent the formation of tartar, which can cause gum disease, bad breath and the harboring of millions of bacteria.

If you have trouble flossing or are unsure of the proper technique, the team at Southside Dental Center is happy to demonstrate and provide tips to ensure you are keeping everything as clean as possible. Give us a call at (763) 703-2367 to learn more.
