It's National Flossing Day! After indulging (and sometimes overindulging) in Thanksgiving dinner and treats, it's important to remember to care for your teeth!
Many thanksgiving foods are full of sugars and starches that are bad for your tooth enamel.
How often should you floss?
It is recommended that you floss at least once a day to help prevent plaque from building up on your teeth.
Why is flossing so important?
Floss reaches where your toothbrush can't - in between your teeth and in hard-to-reach areas. If you don't floss, you're more likely to have plaque buildup, which can lead to cavities, tooth decay and gum disease.
Remind your kids to floss today!
