Regular flossing is a critical part of your dental health regimen, but is too often forgotten. Answers to some questions about flossing may help you understand how important it is.
The ADA recommends flossing once a day to remove plaque and debris from between your teeth.
The short answer is that it really doesn’t matter as long as you do it. Morning or evening, before or after brushing … just floss daily.
Again, the most important thing here is that you floss. Period!
There are several options when choosing dental floss, ranging from the old standby unwaxed or waxed threaded floss to tapes and even comfort floss. There are even options like water flossing or wooden plaque removers. Find what is comfortable for your and use it daily!
The video above explains how to properly floss your teeth for good dental health.
Of course, don’t forget to visit Dr. Owens on a regular basis. Make an appointment today!
