Establishing healthy eating habits and exercising regularly are critically important for your wellbeing but so is have a good routine for oral hygiene. Although many people think flossing is just an unnecessary additional step to brushing, dentists recommend we brush twice a day and floss once a day.
Flossing doesn’t just help get rid of those pesky food scraps stuck between your teeth, it’s actually an essential way to rid your oral cavities of bacteria and germs, particularly if you consume foods with a high acidity such as lemons and tomatoes. Flossing can prevent the growth of plaque, a sticky, yellow substance that damages the surface of your teeth and causes gum disease.
