While a toothbrush can clean the surfaces of your teeth, only floss can remove what lurks in between and in the tight spots under the gumline. Not flossing after brushing is like taking a shower without washing under your arms.

No, it doesn’t matter if you brush first or floss first, though flossing before brushing may allow more fluoride from your toothpaste to reach between your teeth.

To floss on the go, try an interdental cleaner, which is a nerdy way of saying those special little wooden or plastic picks, sticks or brushes designed to clean between the teeth. You’d be surprised how many people keep a stash in their car!

Flossing daily prevents infection, keeps your breath fresh and helps you look younger. Flossing prevents cavities and gum disease and that can save you money – lots of money. Every cavity you prevent can save $2,000 over a lifetime. That’s a lot of dough. Hawaii anyone?

It only takes a couple of minutes to floss, less time than it takes to fix a cup of coffee. It is easy, it provides health benefits that last a lifetime – and it makes you look and feel better.

So, give your teeth and gums a warm hug every day by wrapping them in a floss embrace. Your oral and overall health will improve – and so will your breath.

All the grooming in the world won’t help if you have a piece of spinach stuck in your teeth, or if you have bad breath because of a gum infection.
