Why do you Need to Floss?


Flossing is one of those dental hygiene practices that are really important, but that people won’t always adhere to. If you are thinking about ways in which you can improve your oral health, you may want to think about how often you floss. Do you do it every day, twice a day? If the answer is no, try this out. You might be surprised at the results.

One of the best kinds of floss you can choose is an interdental brush. This will get right in between the teeth, giving the gums and spaces between teeth a thorough clean. You should choose the largest size you can so that you get the best clean possible. Clean right up into your gums to prevent plaque and tartar build-up.

If you aren’t sure you are flossing properly, speak to your dental hygienist. They can advise you and find the right size floss for you.
