The Importance of Brushing and Flossing

January 27th, 2015 → 6:35 pm @

How often do you brush and floss your teeth? This video explains the impact of good oral hygiene.

Your mouth houses millions of bacteria, which feed on the sugars in food. Together, they form plaque, a sticky substance that adheres to tooth enamel and causes both tooth decay and gum inflammation. However, brushing and flossing can minimize the presence of plaque. Brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day can remove bacteria and food debris from your teeth and gums and help you enjoy a beautiful and healthy smile.

Like brushing and flossing, going to a dentist at least twice a year is integral to your oral health. If you are due for your next cleaning, call Sanford Dental Excellence in Sanford at (407) 268-6409 to set up an appointment.
