Flossing is one of the best things you can ever do to care for your teeth.
Flossing every 24 hours to break up plaque is imperative for good oral health.
Flossing is the most critical factor in preventing periodontal (gum) disease, which affects more than 50 percent of adults.
Flossing, just as important as brushing, helps remove the plaque and debris that stick to teeth and gums between the teeth. It also helps polish the tooth’s surface and control bad breath.
Dental floss can be waxed or unwaxed, flavored or unflavored, wide or regular. All floss helps clean and remove plaque. Wider floss, also known as dental tape, may help people with a lot of bridgework and is usually recommended when the spaces between teeth are wide. Waxed floss can be easier to slide between teeth with very little space between them. The benefits of flossing include decreased risk of tooth decay and gum disease and better breath.
