Dental floss or such as floss picks allow you clean between your teeth where a tooth brush can’t reach. Have you ever got a piece of food stuck between your teeth and couldn’t get it out with a toothbrush? It takes 24 hours for plaque to form on your teeth, so flossing and brushing thoroughly once a day is better than just doing a poor job three times a day.
Flossing is a habit we should all try to incorporate into our personal hygiene routine. For those of us without the dexterity such as elderly and the young a floss pick is a great alternative to use. It’s a great way to start developing a healthy habit for the rest of your life.
A final thought: only floss the teeth you want to keep!!
