Confused about flossing?

 

Confused about flossing?
Floss, interdental brushes, water flossers, super floss and the list goes on. So many choices can be overwhelming! And we haven’t started on the options for cleaning around braces, implants other dental appliances!
Remember the end goal: To remove sticky plaque and bacteria (and lunch) from the areas where our trusty tooth brush can’t reach.
Every mouth is different so there is no 100% right way to clean in between your teeth. If in doubt talk to your friendly dental professional about what will be best for you.
But WHY?? Cleaning in between the teeth daily has been shown to improve the health of our gums and can help prevent inflammation and disease in the oral cavity. If your gums bleed when your clean, it may be a sign of gum disease, which if left untreated can mean you lose your teeth, or impact on other areas of your health like your heart!
If you aren’t sure, maybe its time to get those teeth checked, and we can help you choose what is right for you.
Happy flossing all!
