It’s no secret that flossing is good for your oral health. Floss has been around for over 200 years, with its invention credited to an American dentist in the early 1800s. The product itself has experienced different levels of innovation since then, resulting in the waxed string we’re familiar with today.
While it’s recommended that you floss in between your teeth once a day, we would highly recommend also flossing after meals. It’s not always an option to brush your teeth after a meal, so flossing presents an easy and convenient way to remove food debris from your teeth and gums.
Regular flossing will result in a long list of benefits for your teeth and gums. It can help reduce tartar build-up, aid in preventing gum disease and, most importantly, remove the bacteria that causes tooth decay.
