Every time you visit the dentist for a checkup, there’s one question you’re almost certain to hear: “have you been flossing regularly?” For a lot of patients, the answer isn’t always yes. Many people make a point to brush their teeth twice a day, but fewer people follow the recommendation to floss at least once a day. Skipping a few days of flossing allows bacteria the time to solidify, and plaque starts to harden – a substance which causes cavities. Incorporating flossing into your daily routine will keep your teeth healthy and strong, so make sure to leave that floss in plain sight when you brush in the morning, and at night.
