You brush your teeth every morning and every night.

You visit the dentist every six months to have your teeth cleaned.

But there is one more essential dental habit to include in your oral care regimen that can mean the difference between irreversible gum disease and a healthy smile.

You need to floss your teeth once a day, and it’s a step that too many people skip.

Since Black Friday is also National Flossing Day, we want to remind you to put dental floss on your shopping list! Flossing between your teeth is the best way to clean those tiny spaces that your toothbrush can’t reach, and it’s something you can do in under a minute that can have a big impact on your oral health.

In fact, check out this video to see what can happen if you don’t give your smile an extra few seconds each day to floss!
