Flossing is crucial for good oral health. The American Dental Association recommends flossing at least once a day. Flossing removes plaque from areas between the teeth that toothbrushes can’t reach. If plaque is not removed it could harden into calculus or tartar. Most importantly, flossing inhibits cavities and gum disease.

The best way to stay on top of flossing is to schedule out a few minutes of your day. If you feel too tired at the end of the day then floss first thing in the morning or after lunch.

It is just as important that children floss as well. As soon as your child has two teeth that touch this indicates that it’s time to start flossing. Children under the age of ten should be assisted in flossing their teeth because of the manual dexterity it requires.
