Did you know that your toothbrush cannot reach all the surfaces of your teeth, such as below the gum line & in between. Because of this, one of the most important things you can do for your oral health is to floss at least once per day. Flossing removes plaque & food particles & prevents the build up of plaque, which reduces your risk of gum disease & tooth decay.
Help yourself by making flossing your teeth a part of your daily routine. Pick a specific time of day, every day, to floss. Whether it be after breakfast or at bedtime, make sure you do not miss this part of your daily routine. Flossing will help prevent gingivitis & cavities between the teeth. Also, get your children into a routine of flossing & brushing their teeth.
The most important thing about flossing is to just make sure you do it. No matter what time of day you fit it into your routine, if you do a thorough job, it will benefit your oral health. So…floss, floss, floss!
