Why is Flossing so Important?

Why is Flossing so Important?

At Manhattan Dental, my staff and I are constantly reminding our patients to include flossing in their daily routines. Flossing plays a huge role in the health of your teeth, especially when it comes to gum disease, which is the number one reason why people lose their teeth. 

Recent studies point to gum disease as an important risk factor for heart disease, strokes, atherosclerosis, and even Alzheimer's. It's chronic inflammatory effects includes the migration of bacteria to other parts of the body.
Flossing also fights bad breath and prevents cavities. By adding that extra simple step to your daily dental routine, you can save both time and money by preventing dental disease.

We look forward to helping you keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy!
