Did you know…

The American Dental Association recommends flossing at least once a day to achieve optimal oral health.By flossing daily, you help remove plaque from the areas between your teeth as well as under the gum line, where the toothbrush can’t reach. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into calculus or tartar. Flossing also helps prevent gum disease and cavities.

When is the best time to floss? Before I brush or after?

The best time to floss is at bed time. It’s important to floss first, then brush, to remove the bacteria from below the gum line.

Flossing is an essential part of any oral health care routine!
