Flossing Is Important for Healthy Gums

If you want to keep your smile, then you need healthy gums, too.

Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in the United States. Thankfully, it’s a preventable problem.

You can protect your gums and your teeth by doing a few simple things. That includes flossing between your teeth and gums every day. We’re sharing this reminder with you now because National Flossing Day is the day after Thanksgiving. Keep that in mind as you enjoy a leftover turkey sandwich.

In addition to flossing, you should brush your teeth twice daily and visit your dentist for professional cleanings and exams. If you do have signs of gum disease, we can help you treat it.
