Flossing is the great disrupter! In the removal of plaque from your teeth there is no better way! According to the ADA, cleaners that can be used between teeth, such as floss, are extremely important to the health of your gums and teeth.
By flossing twice a day, everyday, you are removing food particles that cannot be reached with your toothbrush no matter how long or hard your brush! These left-over food particles can and will cause plaque build up in between your teeth!
Plaque? What’s plaque? Plaque is a sticky substance made of food particles and spit that can build up on and between your teeth in between brushings. Plaque build up can be a major problem because there are approximately 500 different bacteria, some good and some not so good, that are mixed in! Plaque is a major contributor to tooth decay and gum disease!
