Do you know why it is important to use dental floss?
Dental floss can clean hard to reach areas
Floss can go to areas that a toothbrush cannot reach, and keep those clean.
Flossing loosens food debris and bacteria
Bacteria and food debris are effectively loosened by flossing so the harmful stuff can be flushed away from your mouth easily.
Helps prevent gum disease
Bacteria and plaque can buildup on the area between the teeth and the gum line. Flossing removes this buildup, which can lead to gum disease if left untreated.
Helps prevent the development of cavities
Cleaning the hard to reach areas between teeth prevents the development of cavities that damage teeth.
Helps fight against bad breath
Flossing can remove leftover food pieces inside the mouth, which can cause bad breath.
