What Is a Good Flossing Routine?
You may find yourself asking, "should I floss daily?" Well, according to dental professionals, you should floss at least once a day to remove any food and plaque from between the teeth and along the gumline.
Flossing is easiest with waxed floss, as it won't shred between the teeth. You should also use a soft-bristle toothbrush at least twice daily with fluoride toothpaste to remove plaque, reduce gingivitis, prevent cavities, and provide your mouth with an overall clean, healthy feeling.
Besides acknowledging that daily flossing is a good habit, how can you willingly add it to your routine if you have trouble with traditional dental floss? There are several options one can use to clean between the teeth. The first is floss picks and floss holders. These handy contraptions are easy to use, quick, and neat. For people who have space, consider proxabrushes, which have a handle and a brush that is used to clean between teeth. At the end of the day, you must admit how refreshed and just-been-to-the-dentist your mouth feels after good flossing.
