How Does Flossing Help Your Gums?

Updated 1 week ago by Atul Shastry

While periodontal disease is not the primary cause for pulpal death, chronically unhealthy gums can increase your risk of losing your teeth or needing a root canal. And even though twice-daily tooth brushing is essential for good oral hygiene, brushing alone may not protect you from gum disease and the tooth loss that can result.

Many people who suffer from sensitive or bleeding gums may be tempted to avoid flossing for fear of making their bleeding gums worse. But in fact, flossing can improve the health of your gums, thereby helping to prevent them from bleeding.

Keep up with your Dental Hygiene by flossing everyday. Get your AutoBrush® for Adults Charcoal Dental Flossers now or by clicking the image below!
