Top 4 Amazing Benefits of Brushing and Flossing

by | Oct 28, 2016 | Dental Infographic, Oral Health Tips, Preventative Dentistry


Brushing and flossing are the most important at-home things you can do for your teeth. Why?

    1. Brushing and flossing lead to whiter teeth and a brighter smile! Each day, plaque builds up on your teeth, which can lead to tartar and stains. But brushing and flossing can remove that plaque before it has a chance to become tartar.
    2. Brushing and flossing help you keep you breath fresh! Nobody likes bad breath, also known as ‘halitosis’. Oral bacteria in our mouth can lead to an unhealthy and embarrassing odour. Regular brushing and flossing can prevent buildup of the bacteria that causes bad breath and tooth decay.
    3. The mechanical action of brushing can lead to healthy, firm gums! When we brush, we are mechanically cleaning our teeth, gums, and where they meet. Flossing, on the other hand, can reach between and below the surfaces of the teeth and gums.

This cleaning is necessary because unclean gums are unhealthy ones – they can cause gum disease, which not only leads to serious problems in your mouth, but in the health of your entire body.

  1. Regular brushing and flossing can save you money! Good dental habits, including brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day, can help protect your pocketbook. Brushing and flossing prevent problems that will require extra visits to the dentist.

That time you ‘invest’ in oral hygiene at home is also an investment in financial stability.

Brushing and flossing keep your smile white, clean, without odor. They also sustain the health of your gums, and even help you save money!

So, insure your dental, physical, and financial health with a regular routine of brushing and flossing!
