Discover How Dental Floss Provides a String of Benefits in the Face Of National Flossing Day

National Flossing Day

Flossing is essential for good dental care every day of the year, but it takes on special significance on National Flossing Day which occurs on Saturday, November 29, during this year’s National Dental Hygiene Month. While brushing has become a daily habit, flossing often gets forgotten because it requires a little more effort. Yet flossing plays a significant role in preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and more serious health conditions. So in the spirit of this upcoming flossing festivity, now is the time to make flossing a regular part of your daily dental care.

Regular flossing makes a huge difference in your dental health, so you really can’t afford to ignore it. Flossing cleans those areas your toothbrush can’t reach to remove the food and bacteria that lead to plaque buildup, gum disease, and tooth decay. With regular flossing, you can keep your teeth and gums as clean as possible. This can protect you from dental care problems and save you from the high cost of treatment, even with an affordable dentist.

Experts in family dentistry advise flossing twice a day, but you need to floss correctly to get the full benefits. Start with about 18 inches of dental floss and wrap it between your fingers to make a taut strand. Gently slide the floss around each tooth, guiding it slightly below the gumline and then moving it up and down between your teeth to remove particles and plaque. Be sure to use a fresh section of floss for each tooth.

There are different types of dental floss, each with its own benefits. Nylon floss, the most common type, is available in many flavors and in unwaxed and waxed versions. While waxed nylon floss slides more easily between teeth and is favored by people with fillings or crowns, its threads are likely to separate. PTFE floss slides most easily of all and doesn’t tear or shred, but it tends to cost slightly more. The choice of floss is yours; what matters is that you use it regularly.

If you find regular floss hard to handle or have limited dexterity from arthritis, then a flosser may be best for you. Flossers are disposable flossing tools that have a short strand of floss already stretched out and ready for use. Their small handle makes it easy to slide the floss between teeth and reach into tight crevices.

As your dentist has told you, flossing is an essential part of a good dental care regimen. It cleans where your toothbrush can’t reach, to protect you from dental problems. To celebrate National Flossing Day on November 29, start flossing on a regular basis and enjoy the healthy results.
