Do you care about your smile? Then you should floss each day! Flossing is a key factor to oral health success. To help you understand flossing, our team here at North Texas Dental Associates in Plano, Texas, is happy to talk to you about the importance of flossing each day.

Flossing should be an important step in your daily hygiene routine. This is because food particles 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 create cavities. If these cavities are left untreated, you could suffer tooth loss, gum disease, and even bone loss.

Tartar can only be removed by your dentist, Dr. James Hillstrom. That is why your six-month appointment is so important to your oral health. If you neglect your teeth because of a simple step like flossing, you could fall victim to gum disease and suffer painful and costly consequences. That is why having a healthy daily routine of flossing is so essential to your oral health and smile.
