In order to achieve and maintain a healthy, strong smile, you need all the benefits that daily flossing provides. In fact, we offer three reasons why daily flossing is important to your dental health and your happiness.

First, the primary function of dental floss is to clean plaque and food particles from between the teeth and other areas that are inaccessible to a toothbrush. As plaque is a leading cause of tooth decay and gum disease, it needs to be removed from your smile regularly.

Second, your breath stays fresh longer when you remove the odor-causing food that sticks to your teeth. Mint-flavored floss is especially effective at helping your breath remain fresh.

Third, there is no need to worry about the awkward social scenario of having food wedged in your teeth while you chat with a family member, friend, or special someone if you take the time to floss after eating.
