Are you someone who has very good flossing habits? If so, then our Moreno Valley, CA team knows you floss once every day and you’re doing so in a manner that is gentle enough to avoid irritation but thorough enough to remove plaque from between teeth (and just beneath your gumline). While this may just be part of what you do for your dental hygiene every day, your Moreno Valley dentist wants you to remember that this is actually an extremely significant task you’re completing and that it’s allowing you to enjoy some fantastic benefits! Consider what sticking to the suggested smile care program means for you in terms of your flossing!

You’re Very On Track

Chances are good that if you’re flossing, you’re also brushing, which means you’re taking care of the details your Moreno Valley dentist suggests you take care of for optimal smile care at home! It’s easy to forget, when you’re just doing what is recommended for you, but keep in mind that the goal of brushing and flossing is to remove as much debris and plaque as you can, so your teeth remain free of tartar, which makes for good oral health. Simply put, you’re doing a great job!

You’re Avoiding A Myriad Of Oral Problems

Are you flossing daily? If you’re nodding your head, then your Moreno Valley dentist reminds you that thanks to the aforementioned removal of debris and plaque and the prevention of tartar, you’re also preventing a long list of damaging problems from impacting your oral health. Don’t forget that flossing protects a great deal of tissue in your smile, even if it seems like just a tiny bit of space, which means you’re side-stepping things like cavities and periodontal problems!

Your Breath Is Probably Lovely

When you don’t have plaque, tartar, and their bacteria filling up your smile, when you don’t have decaying food debris, and you aren’t dealing with oral health issues like decay, your smile is clean and healthy. Naturally, that means your flossing efforts are helping you maintain good breath, too! Good job!
