The Importance of Flossing your Teeth
It is important to keep your mouth, teeth, and gums in healthy condition. If you do not properly care for them, eventually you will have an issue that can result in a costly bill. It will also increase the chance that you have pain in your mouth or teeth.
Brushing your teeth is important, but you should also remember to floss. Brushing will help to remove germs and food from the teeth, but it is still difficult to get between your teeth. By flossing, you will remove any food particles that are between your teeth, and other hard to reach places. If you ignore flossing, the germs and plaque can start to form a cavity. It also increases with time that the cavity can turn into an issue more serious, and you may need a root canal.
