There are many people who are not comfortable with dental floss. As a result, their teeth suffer painful and costly consequences. Flossing is an important tool when it comes to fighting gum disease and keeping your smile in healthy and happy shape. Here at Cedar Pointe Family Dentistry in Farmington, New Mexico, our team of experts takes pride in helping others have positive oral health, which is why we are happy to talk to you about the importance of flossing.

Gum disease can strike to anyone, many of whom do not even know they have it. Gum disease can cause many problems like tooth loss and even bone loss. Cavities can also lead to gum disease or cause tooth loss when ignored. That is why it is always best to avoid these conditions. Flossing always holds the key when it comes to recovering from both conditions. The reason is that floss clears the sticky plaque, bacteria, and food particles from your teeth, between your teeth, and deep along the gum line.

Your oral health is important and has been found to be linked to other conditions such as heart disease and stroke. By keeping your smile in great shape, you could reduce the risk of other conditions from invading your smile. That is why Dr. Denver Palmer encourages flossing to keep your smile healthy and strong.
