Orange County Dentist Dr. Kurt Schneider offers a variety of benefits to making flossing a part of your daily routine. A few of these benefits are listed below:
Flossing prevents periodontal disease as well as gingivitis. Flossing removes plaque and bacteria, which, if left in your mouth, can develop into periodontal disease. This can eventually lead to heart disease. It’s hard to believe that flossing can decrease your risk of heart disease, but it is completely true.
Flossing improves your smile and people’s perception of you. People may not admit it, but they look and judge people based on their teeth and smile. Flossing improves the look of your gums and teeth, which can help when meeting that special person for the first time. This could ultimately help you in a job interview or when you are out on that first date.
Flossing helps to improve your breath. No one wants to talk to someone who has a severe case of halitosis. Flossing is one of the easiest ways to improve your breath.
