One of the most important parts of dental hygiene is flossing. Flossing prevents the buildup of plaque, ultimately decreasing the chances of periodontal disease. Flossing once a day can help you ensure a beautiful smile for many years to come.  Everyone is different. Choose a dental floss that feels comfortable on your teeth and gums. There are waxed, unwaxed, flavored, and unflavored flosses. If you have tight teeth, waxed floss may work best for you. If you’re not using floss consistently, you may experience bleeding gums. This is a sign that you need to floss more often. Flossing plays a prime role in the overall health of your teeth and keeps your smile fresh and beautiful!
