As much as no one likes flossing, we can all agree that bad breath is worse! Many people avoid flossing because it takes some time and practice to get it right, therefore, they give up. Flossing has many benefits to your oral health such as preventing bad breath and potential cavities. Bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease can be caused by trapped food particles and bacteria in hard to reach areas which can easily be removed with some dental floss. To get into the flossing habit, floss at the same time everyday, keep your floss in a visible place next to your sink, or write it down on your daily ‘to do’ list. While flossing is recommended twice a day, flossing at least once a day is sufficient. It is preferred that you floss at night to remove all food particles and bacteria that has built up throughout the day. Daily flossing will not only improve your overall oral health but help to beat bad breath. Once you commit to this daily habit your teeth will feel cleaner and you’ll smile!
