    Default How flossing helps

    1.Proper flossing removes plaque and dislodges food particles stuck in areas where a toothbrush cannot easily reach i.e., below the gum-line and in-between your teeth.

    2.Regular flossing also reduces chances of gum disease and drives away bad breath by averting plaque build-up that forms along the gum line.

    Floss is an interdental cleaner-- it's designed specifically to clean the tight spaces between the teeth and the gap between the base of the teeth and the gums.

    You right saying. If the floss is too thin, it may be too weak and break. Different floss will suit different mouths, and even different parts of one mouth. This is because some teeth have a smaller gap between them than others. It's possible that thicker floss does a better job of scraping bacterial plaque off teeth, given that there is space enough between the teeth to use it.
