The day after Thanksgiving is National Flossing Day, a dental habit that’s so important, they set aside a day each year to celebrate it!

Yet, studies show that most adults admit that flossing isn’t part of their daily oral hygiene routine. They may floss every now and then or perhaps a couple of times a week. 

But taking a minute to floss every single day is one of the best things you can do for your dental health!

Flossing is a vital practice for a healthy smile because it enables the removal of food debris and plaque from areas between teeth that your toothbrush can’t reach. This step also prevents gum disease, cavities, and bad breath. 

Embrace this quick and easy habit to ensure optimum dental health, promoting a confident and happy smile for the long haul.

If it’s been awhile, use this American Dental Association video as a guide for the proper flossing technique!
