In addition to brushing your teeth twice per day, flossing daily is critical to keeping your mouth healthy. Proper and frequent flossing removes food particles, bacteria, and sticky plaque. It helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more about the importance of flossing and see a demonstration of correct technique.
