Emergency dentistry news: Flossing could relieve tooth sensitivity
People hoping to prevent emergency dentistry by ensuring they adopt an effective oral health routine could benefit from dental care advice.
Individuals with sensitive teeth should floss regularly in a bid to improve overall health in the mouth.
Carrying out the act after brushing could prevent an increased build-up of plaque in hard-to-reach areas between teeth and gums.
Flossing can also prevent the development of gingivitis, which is caused by excess bacteria in all areas of the mouth.
According to WorldDental.org, ensuring oral health is maintained is vital to providing sensitive teeth with the care they need to prevent the condition worsening.
Along with this, using a fluoride toothpaste and soft-bristled brush results in the protection of the tooth's enamel, which is vital for guarding against plaque.
Previous research has also revealed regular flossing can prevent the development of wider health issues, such as diabetes, stroke and arthritis.
