Are you experiencing symptoms like loose teeth, bad breath, or bleeding gums? These signs could indicate periodontal disease, a condition that can lead to serious damage if left untreated. At Archibald Dental Centre, we emphasize preventive care to help you maintain optimal oral health.

One of the simplest yet most powerful tools against periodontal disease is dental floss. Even if you diligently brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, plaque and bacteria can still build up in hard-to-reach places between your teeth. Daily flossing effectively removes debris and helps prevent gum disease.

Surprisingly, many people overlook flossing in their daily routine. According to the American Dental Association, only 40% of individuals floss daily, despite its proven benefits. At Archibald Dental Centre, our team educates patients on proper flossing techniques to enhance their oral hygiene regimen.

Here are some tips for effective flossing:

  1. Use approximately 18 inches of dental floss, wrapping most of it around your middle fingers.
  2. Gently slide the floss between each pair of teeth, curving it around the base of each tooth.
  3. Be thorough yet gentle to avoid injuring your gums.

Regular flossing not only removes plaque and food particles but also reduces the risk of gum inflammation and cavities. At Archibald Dental Centre, we encourage all our patients in the R2J0Z3 area to make flossing a daily habit for better oral health.
