Dental Floss: The Secret Weapon for a Healthy Smile
Brushing your teeth is typically at the forefront of any conversation about oral hygiene, but flossing often gets forgotten.
It’s easy to understand why dental floss is overshadowed by the toothbrush. Sure, flossing may not be the most enjoyable activity, but it is equally as important in maintaining a healthy smile!
