Why is flossing important?

Did you know that our teeth have FIVE surfaces? There’s the tongue side, face/cheek side, the top (chewing surface), and two sides (in between teeth). When we brush without flossing we are only cleaning 3/5 of our teeth. That means that we are missing 40%!

Not flossing can lead to:

  • Bad breath
  • Cavities between teeth
  • Gingivitis and/or periodontal disease
  • Tooth loss

Remember these next time you think about skipping the floss.
