The day after Thanksgiving isn’t just Black Friday.

It’s also National Flossing Day!

Studies show that most people don’t floss every day, but this is such an important step in your daily oral hygiene routine.

Your toothbrush can’t do what flossing can, which is removing food particles that get stuck between your teeth. It also allows you to clean around and below the gumline where harmful plaque likes to hide.

So while you’re out navigating your way through the hustle and bustle, make sure you pick up some dental floss. When you commit to this one-minute practice every single day, you’ll lower your risk for gum disease and other oral health threats and also find that your dental checkups will start to go more smoothly!
