Beware Of Ninja Flossers

Flossing is one of the most effective ways of removing plaque from between teeth and at the gumline. It is also the best tool against periodontal disease, which affects 75% of Americans.

 

We’ve all got our routines. Some people floss to music, watching television or maybe while doing a jig. In front of a mirror is a good idea, probably not while entertaining friends.

 

But one of the cardinal rules is don’t be a ninja flosser. Especially when maneuvering around the tight spaces between teeth. Aggressive flossing doesn’t get your teeth cleaner; it will just traumatize the gum causing it to recede over time.

 

Do your pearly whites a favor and learn proper flossing technique from your dentist or hygienist.
