Dentists recommend you brush your teeth at least twice a day, but that’s not it, you’re supposed to floss as well. Flossing helps get in between your teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach. It’s important to fully care for your oral health and that includes flossing.
Not flossing can lead to gum disease, which can be painful and unpleasant. Taking care of gum disease can be an extensive process. If you have braces it’s extremely important to floss to care for your teeth. Braces make it harder to reach all the spaces on your teeth, flossing helps keep your teeth healthy.
