Do you floss every day?
Did you know if you skip flossing and only brush you’re missing up to 40 percent of each tooth!
Many of the cavities that we see in the office are in these areas because patients aren’t flossing regularly. Flossing also helps keep your gums healthy.
There are many types of dental floss and there is no one “right” floss for everyone. In fact, there’s no reason why you can’t have several types of floss and flossing products on hand. A small container of nylon dental floss or dental tape is great for a purse, pocket or carry-on travel bag. A mint-flavored floss can be a great choice to use when you’re traveling so you don’t have to carry a bottle of mouthwash. And when you’re at home, you can treat yourself to your electric flosser.
As with any other product, finding the right dental floss for your oral care needs might take some trial and error. There are so many types of floss and flossing products to choose from that the choices can seem overwhelming. No matter what product you choose, the most important thing is to floss daily.
