Flossing is one of the best ways to keep teeth clean. Not only does it remove harmful bacteria and strengthen gums, it helps prevent cavities as well. With the proper flossing technique, you’ll have a brighter, healthier smile in no time! Check out our step-by-step guide and instructional video to get started.
So, what’s so important about gums? The cracks between your teeth are the perfect environment for tarter and plaque. When harmful toxins are released, gums can get inflamed as the bone starts to break down, leading to gum disease and even your teeth falling out. In order to prevent this from happening, it’s imperative to floss daily. This will remove bacteria to stop the problem at the source.

Good oral hygiene doesn’t stop at your teeth and gums. Your lips are just as important! Due to the thin, fragile layer of skin, our lips easily dry out—especially when compared to other parts of our body. They’re also more sensitive, so it’s essential to exfoliate, hydrate, and moisturize regularly. Check out our tips, and you’ll have soft, kiss-ready lips in no time!
Cavities can put quite the damper on an otherwise beautiful smile. When oral bacteria feed off sugar to emit acid, they wear away at your tooth, causing a cavity. But don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to fight cavities. Flossing and regular fluoride treatments are just to two of the many things you can do.
