Your teeth should be flossed on a daily basis to remove any type of excess food particles that may be stuck. Leaving the food in-between your teeth will result in tooth decay and bacteria forming. Knowing how to properly floss your teeth will help ensure that you are doing everything you can to improve the overall health of your mouth, gums, and teeth.
Steps for Flossing Your Teeth
However, if you’re not keen on using dental floss or are tired of lying to your dentist that you are indeed flossing, there are other inter dental cleaners available that may help you to keep your word and take better care of your teeth.
You can use disposable or non disposable floss picks, inter dental brushes or a water flosser.
Alternative inter dental products can help you keep the area between your teeth clean and free of plaque so that you can continue to maintain a healthy mouth. If you cannot decide which alternative floss product to use, a dentist can help you decide by recommending a product that takes into account the spaces between your teeth and suits your oral hygiene habits and lifestyle.
Remember to brush and floss your teeth twice a day will help keep them healthy and you will love the way your teeth look and feel.
