When it comes to your health, why take chances? Did you know, flossing is an important part of your oral health? Well, it’s true! Flossing is essential when it comes to taking care of your smile, which is why our team here at Howe Dental in Roy, Utah, is happy to talk to you about flossing and your oral health.

Flossing should be an essential step in your daily hygiene routine. This is because food particles or debris that can become stuck in your teeth create plaque buildup and cause cavities. Even if there are no food particles in your teeth, bacteria and plaque buildup, which turns to tartar, can develop into cavities. If these harmful cavities are left untreated, you could suffer tooth loss, gum disease, and even bone loss.

Tartar can only be removed by your dentist, Dr. Chad Howe. That is why your six-month appointment is so vital to your oral health. If you neglect your smile by not flossing, you could fall victim to gum disease and suffer painful and costly consequences. That is why  flossing on a daily basis is so essential to your oral health and smile.
