Our Guide to Flossing

We all know that flossing is an important part of your oral hygiene routine.

Flossing can help prevent gum disease by removing plaque from inbetween your teeth. If plaque is not removed, it can eventually harden into a rough substance called tartar which can eventually lead to gum disease. Once this has formed along your gum line, only a dentist can remove it.

Research studies show that brushing your teeth with a toothbrush does not remove all dental plaque buildup between your teeth. This is where flossing comes in and helps to attack the plaque buildup. Flossing gets rid of food and plaque between the teeth, where your toothbrush cannot reach. If plaque stays between teeth, it can cause cavities or gum disease.
