Dental Term


Flossing is an integral part of maintaining optimal oral health. It involves using a thin thread of dental floss to clean between the teeth and along the gumline, removing plaque and food particles that brushing alone cannot reach. Regular flossing helps prevent gum disease, cavities, and bad breath by removing debris and reducing the buildup of plaque. It is recommended to floss at least once a day, using proper technique and gentle motions to avoid injuring the gums. Dental professionals can provide guidance on proper flossing techniques and recommend suitable flossing aids, such as floss picks or water flossers.
