To Floss or Not to Floss? | Dentist Frisco

In recent news, doubts have been raised about the necessity of flossing for oral health. We want to set the record straight: YES, flossing is crucial for maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

Whether you prefer traditional string floss, a water flosser, or interdental brushes, cleaning between your teeth daily is vital. Despite sensational headlines, many news reports have provided incomplete and inaccurate information.

Here’s the truth: Proper daily flossing prevents plaque and bacteria buildup between teeth. This buildup is a major contributor to periodontal disease, which not only affects oral health but is also linked to systemic health issues like diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.

During your next visit to Frisco Dental Studio, ask our hygienist to demonstrate the most effective interdental cleaning techniques. For more guidance on flossing or to schedule an appointment, please reach out to us. Your oral health matters, and we’re here to help you maintain it.
