If you want a healthy and beautiful smile, then remember flossing is essential. Flossing your teeth each day is essential to keeping your teeth healthy and bright. Here at McQuiston Dental in Alexandria, Virginia, we care about your smile, which is why we want to remind you the importance of flossing.

Did you know flossing is pivotal in preventing cavities or fighting gum disease? Well, it’s true! Flossing keeps between your teeth and along your gum line clean from plaque, tartar, and bacteria that could lead to gum disease. This step often gets skipped, which could lead to oral health problems like cavities and gum disease.

Flossing is important, but brushing also works hand-in-hand with floss to keep your smile clean. One without the other can still put your oral health at risk. That is why it is important to understand they work together to keep your smile white and bright. However, the most important step to take to keep your teeth healthy is to visit your dentist, Dr. Scott McQuiston to make sure your oral health is on track.
