Are you looking for tips or information on why you should floss? If so, you have come to the right place! Flossing can seem tedious at times, but can also make a dramatic impact on your smile. That is why our team here at Bright Dental in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, is happy to talk to you about flossing and why it can help your oral health.

Cavities can show up anywhere you have tooth enamel. That means your teeth are at risk along with your gum line, between your teeth, and even the outside top and sides of your teeth. Brushing your teeth with a toothbrush twice a day will clean the sides and top of your teeth, which leaves between the teeth and deep along the gum line still exposed.

Flossing is used to keep your teeth risk-free from cavities in those hard-to-reach places. There are many different types of floss to help slide between your teeth and gently clean along the gum line to help your teeth stay healthy. Flossing each and every night before bed will greatly reduce these risks of cavities and keep your teeth in tip-top shape.

Our caring and professional team is happy to assist you and address any questions or concerns pertaining to your oral care.
