How to floss like a boss.

Flossing your teeth effectively

Flossing your teeth is a mystery to most people. In this video, Flora Couper (a fully qualified hygienist) demonstrates the most effective and simple way to floss.

Why do we floss? Simple really. We floss to prevent a build up of bacteria between our teeth. These are the spaces that even the best toothbrush won’t reach. Left unattended, this sticky bacterial matter could develop into plaque.

What is plaque? Plaque is the food and bacteria that is left between your teeth and form a barrier on your enamel which can then cause decay. Bzzzz….nobody likes the sound of a dentist’s drill!

If you are proud of your beautiful white teeth, but notice that they are becoming more yellow, this is likely to be caused by plaque. Don’t worry, this can be easily resolved with a visit to your hygienist who will remove the plaque buildup and recommend an oral routine which will include flossing and possibly brushing with a sonic toothbrush for two minutes, twice a day.

If completely ignored, plaque can cause some serious damage to your gums leading to teeth failing…this means loosing your teeth and nobody wants that!
