Did you know that the most common spot for decay is in between your teeth? This is because it’s the area that’s missed the most.
If you think about having a shower; you wash ALL sides of your body – not just the front and the back. Similarly, brushing is great and works really well cleaning the front and back surfaces of your teeth, but it doesn’t get in between the teeth well. This is why flossing is so important!
Find flossing tiring? There are other methods you can use to clean in between your teeth such as an interdental brush (like a Pikster) or a Waterpik. Ask us about these alternatives next time you come in for your check up!
