Brushing your teeth eliminates the plaque buildup on the surface of your teeth, however, there are small spaces in your teeth that a tooth brush cannot reach; this is where flossing comes in. Many people don’t realize the importance of flossing. Some think that just brushing is enough, and although it is necessary, it’s not the only vital step for healthy teeth. Floss allows people to remove the plaque from in between the teeth before it accumulates and causes a cavity, or a more severe issue.
