Top Three Reasons to Floss Daily

Posted on 8/13/2015 by Dr. Call
A man flossing his teeth.Since early childhood, the benefits of daily oral care were ground into the brains of every child. Clearly, it's an important issue. This not only includes brushing teeth with toothpaste, or even alternative methods such as oil pulling, but also flossing. While it may seem like it's unnecessary or a hassle, it proves to be very important to overall dental hygiene. Brushing alone cannot provide all the benefits that can be achieved with daily oral care. Flossing can improve your smile - boosting confidence, reducing the risk of oral complications, and helping you avoid large dental bills from expensive procedures that may be necessary due to poor dental health.

Everyone dreams of a pearly white smile (although the healthiest teeth aren't movie star white, and in fact have a bit of a tint to them), but very few people have teeth they're proud of. This can be due to staining, injury, and the absence of daily dental hygiene. While simple brushing will remove most of the plaque and stain-causing substances such as tobacco or coffee, dental floss can help remove as much as half of these tooth-harming substances, and can reduce the risk of diseases that affect enamel and dentin. Flossing can help you achieve a brighter smile with less discoloration, a smile you can be proud of and show off without any personal regret. Having a healthy smile can help you feel better about yourself and be happier in general.

Because flossing removes so much of the harmful substances in your mouth, with proper use it reduces the risk of cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. Gum disease is a risk factor for other serious issues such as diabetes and heart disease. With flossing, you're less likely to have these health complications and more likely to not only have better oral health, but have better overall health as well. It is important to floss and stay healthy in your life.

Additionally, the diseases and issues associated with plaque buildup make for very expensive bills. Many of these issues can be very costly. Treatments for gum disease consist of root planting, bone grafts, and bone surgery, among other expensive treatments. With daily flossing, you can avoid spending money to fix the many issues poor oral hygiene can cause.

Flossing has been ingrained into our minds for a very good reason: it's important to stay healthy and have pearly, clean teeth. So make sure you take care of yours by brushing, but also daily flossing to accompany it. The benefits will surely show on your face as well as in your body.

Located in Hillsboro, our office is easily accessible as it is right off of Oregon Route 8. We have gone to great lengths to make sure our office is both state-of-the-art and also comfortable and inviting.

Services Offered

Preventive Dentistry

We are passionate about preventing problems before they start. We do so by educating our patients about what positive dental habits they can be forming and having our patients visit us twice a year for exams and cleanings.

Restorative Dentistry

We understand that often, due to circumstances outside of your control, your mouth may need restorative actions taken. That’s why we offer a bevy of restorative procedures to bring your smile back to it’s original luster.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Frequently we hear that the procedures that make the biggest difference in our patient’s smiles are cosmetic in nature. Whitening, veneers and Invisalign® are just a few of the cosmetic procedure we offer!

IV Sedation

For those patients that need more than just oral sedation we offer what is often called “sleep sedation”. If anxiety is an issue or if the procedure calls for it we can easily place you under full anesthesia to ensure that you rest peacefully through the whole thing.

Dental Implants

If you have lost a tooth or are looking at tooth removal as an option, dental implants are the most highly recommended form of replacement for teeth. Dental implants involve inserting a titanium post into your jaw which will fuse with your bone structure. The post will be topped with a crown made specifically to fit your bite. The result is a form of tooth replacement that looks and acts exactly as your real tooth would. It even prevents bone loss, which is a common side effect of tooth loss.

Dental Technology

We are happy to use a great variety of cutting edge technology in our practice. Digital X-rays are one of our staples in dental tech. Standard X-rays can take time to view and process but with the advent of digital X-rays we can view the inner workings of your mouth almost instantly. We are also able to take higher quality X-rays that allow us to detect things like tooth decay within the tooth, cysts, tumors, and impacted teeth. Further, the radiation you receive from a digital X-ray device is about 1/5th that of a standard X-ray.

We also offer intraoral cameras and ultrasonic scalers. The intraoral cameras aid us in detecting any issues within your mouth that may need further dental attention. Ultrasonic scalers are by far the most effective method for removing built up plaque and tartar that has accumulated on teeth.
