Feelin' Flossy

Did you know?

If you only brush your teeth, you miss cleaning about 40% of your tooth surface!

Flossing helps remove bacteria build-up between your teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach. This will help decrease cavities found in between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.

Bleeding gums? FLOSS!

Bleeding is a sign of inflammation caused by bacteria build-up underneath the gums. It' s important to floss using a "C" shape technique and go up and down the tooth surface about 5 times, reaching underneath the gum surface. No shoe-shine motion.

If you have tight contacts between your teeth, any WAXED floss will help get in between those hard to reach areas for a better and thorough clean.


Floss at least once a day before brushing.

FLOSSING TIP: Floss right after eating dinner so you don’t get lazy doing it before bed. Habits are easily’s only hard in the beginning.
