Celebrate National Flossing Day by Fitting Flossing into Your Life

National Flossing Day

With the arrival of National Flossing Day on Saturday, November 29, we need to face the importance of flossing in our daily dental care regimens. While brushing your teeth is second nature, flossing is often the first thing we skip when we’re rushing around and racing the clock. But since flossing is essential for reducing plaque, preventing tooth decay, and decreasing the risk of gum disease, it’s time to make flossing a must instead of a maybe.

With regular flossing, you’ll make a huge difference in your dental health, so don’t ignore it. Flossing cleans the places your toothbrush can’t reach and removes bacteria and food that lead to tooth decay, plaque buildup, and gum disease. 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.

Family dentistry experts 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 the teeth to remove any particles and plaque. Be sure to use a fresh section of floss for each tooth.

It’s important to know that there are different types of dental floss with their own unique benefits. Nylon floss is the most common and is available in many flavors and in both waxed and unwaxed versions. While waxed nylon floss slides more easily between teeth and is favored by people with fillings or crowns, its nylon threads are likely to separate. PTFE floss slides most easily of all and doesn’t shred or tear, but it tends to cost a little bit more. The choice is yours; what really matters is that you use it.

If you find it hard to maneuver regular floss or have limited dexterity, then disposable flossers may work well for you. They’re flossing tools that have a short strand of floss already stretched out and ready for use. The small handle makes it easy to slide the floss between your teeth to reach into tight areas.

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