A beautiful smile can positively impact a person’s confidence and overall well-being. But getting and keeping white teeth takes work, and flossing is one of the most important things you can do to keep your mouth healthy and your smile bright.

What is Flossing?

When you floss, you clean between your teeth and along the gumline with a thin string called dental floss. Flossing removes food particles and plaque from these areas, which are hard to reach with a toothbrush.

Flossing can be done with traditional dental floss, floss picks or water flossers. The American Dental Association recommends flossing at least once daily (preferably twice) to maintain good oral health.

How Flossing Keeps Teeth White

While brushing is a crucial part of dental care, it only cleans the surface of teeth, leaving the spaces between teeth untouched. This is where flossing comes in: it helps clear debris from between the teeth and along the gum line, preventing stains and discoloration.

Prevents Plaque Buildup

Plaque is a film of bacteria that builds up on the teeth. It can cause cavities and gum disease. Plaque also contains substances that can cause discoloration of the teeth over time.

Flossing helps remove plaque from areas between the teeth and along the gum line, preventing buildup and reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Removing plaque keeps your teeth healthy and avoids unsightly stains and discoloration.

Improves Blood Circulation

Flossing also helps improve blood circulation in the gums, leading to healthier gums and teeth. When you floss, you are stimulating the gum tissue, increasing blood flow and oxygen to the area. This helps to promote healing and prevent gum disease, which can cause inflammation and discoloration of the gums.

Healthy gums are essential for maintaining white teeth, and flossing is an effective way to keep them in good condition.

  • Michelle R.

    Great experience! The staff was really sweet and informative through the whole process and got me in and out pretty quickly plus it is more affordable than any other dentists I have been to.

  • Thomas N.

    Great experience and much more affordable. Dr. Granger was very personable and professional. I needed a deep cleaning/scaling done and the dentist I saw at Aspen dental wanted almost $2K for it and that’s with a discount. Then an additional $150 per follow up visit. Dr. Granger took care of it all for under $700 and the work is just as good. I will continue to utilize this office for my cleanings from here out.
