Dec 28, 2018

With the holiday season among us, Dr. Doug Disraeli knows how hard it can be sticking to a healthy dental regime. Doug Disraeli D.D.S. offers tips for sticking to that flossing resolution in 2019 and beyond.

Flossing removes plaque as well as preventing the buildup of plaque. Removing plaque prevents tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque can lead to tartar and tartar leads to gum disease and receding gums. Tartar control is very important when it comes to keeping your teeth healthy.

Dr. Disraeli’s tips for sticking to flossing daily:
  • Place floss near or next to your toothbrush
  • Set reminders
  • Bring to-go floss with you
  • Get mint flavor floss to add taste
  • Smell your floss after missing a couple days

“Flossing daily is one of the most common dental resolutions,” says Disraeli, “We understand that it can be hard to stick to it every day, but the benefits of flossing are much better than gum disease.”
