• Our Woodridge Dentist says “Flossing Prevents Cavities”

You can prevent cavities between your teeth by flossing just once a day! Dr Hannah Baek, Woodridge dentist, recommends flossing your teeth to remove plaque build-up between your teeth. Your toothbrush bristles are too large to clean away the food debris and plaque between your teeth. Using floss once a day will remove this plaque containing bacteria that causes cavities (tooth decay) between your teeth.

If you have children under the age of 10, we encourage you to assist the child by flossing for them. You can find cute flavored flossers with long handles designed for children at most stores.

Watch a short video on flossing from the American Dental Association’s new website MouthHealthy.org.

The staff at Healthy Smile Dental will show you a simple way to floss! They will also show you some floss holders that make it even easier to get the job done. Call for your appointment.
