Even though flossing is a vital part of your oral health care, many people don’t spend enough time flossing their teeth or flossing at all. The best time to floss is right before you go to bed. Flossing for 2-3 minutes at least once a day can decrease your risk for gum disease and increase your oral health.
Here at Gunnerson Dental, many people ask us if fusing a waterpick replaces regular flossing. According to the AGD, “A waterpick , or irrigation device, should not be used as a substitute for brushing and flossing because it does not remove plaque. However, waterpicks can be used to remove food from areas around braces where a toothbrush can’t reach.”
