Flossing for health. Brushing cleans just three side of the tooth. Flossing removes debris, food , bacteria from the other two. Flossing once a day disturbs the bacteria from becoming the type that attack you teeth and gums. Flossing additionally is a benefit anytime food is wedged between teeth as corn on the cob and chicken tend to do.
Yes. Does using soap when you wash make a difference? Flossing should be done whenever you brush! brushing cleans only part of the tooth!
Yes. Flossing makes a difference. But understand that it has to be a daily habit. Flossing 2 times per week is of no benefit. It is a 7 day a week commitment. In addition to flossing, other adjuncts such as inter-dental brushes and the use of a waterpik can also prove very worthwhile. There is a saying -- gum disease will leave you with nothing to smile about. Hope this helps.
