Hate flossing??? These 5 reasons will change your mind!

Not flossing is icky! About 1/3 of plaque on your teeth can only be reached with floss or floss picks.

Flossing fights bad breath. Without flossing, food and plaque trapped between teeth can cause bad breath odors.

Not flossing hurts.  Plaque buildup between teeth can lead to tender, inflamed and bleeding gums.

Floss sends plaque packing.  Floss removes plaque below the gum line which can help keep teeth healthy and happy for years to come.

Flossing saves cash.  Costly treatments for tooth and gum issues can be prevented by flossing.

TECHNIQUE TIPS:

1.  Wind 18in. of floss around middle fingers
2.  Slide floss between teeth, below the gumline and hug tooth as you slide up & down
3.  Repeat on both sides of each tooth, using a fresh section of floss as you go
Tip: Try floss picks as a convenient on the go solution

We know. Flossing seems like a hassle. So are bleeding gums and bad breath!
