- Flossing Protects You Teeth Flossing is not so much about removing food from your teeth, as much as it is about removing plaque and germs from them. If you allow plaque to stay on your teeth, you might end up with gum disease, or worse lose your teeth.
- A Better Smile Mouth wash and whitening treatments are no substitute for consistent and proper brushing and flossing. Simply being consistent with your flossing will truly brighten your smile; remember, it’s about removing the stains on your teeth, not hiding them.
- Bad Breath Have you ever eaten something incredibly tasty, only to realize that your breath stinks? Or, perhaps you have woken up after a nice long rest only to discover you have the dreaded “morning breath.” Flossing removes the stinky bacteria and plaque that stays in your mouth long after that delicious cheesecake is gone.
- Cleaner Mouth As the saying goes, “The devil is in the details’ and brushing your teeth, as extremely important as it is, is not a detailed enough. The bristles of your tooth brush are clumsy and work best on the larger surfaces of your teeth. Flossing on the other hand looks at the details and reaches the areas of your teeth that a tooth brush simply cannot reach.
