While brushing your teeth twice a day is a must, it’s not enough on its own to help you maintain a healthy mouth

Flossing each day is a game-changing habit for your oral health because it gets to all those places that your toothbrush can’t reach. This prevents plaque buildup, gingivitis, cavities, and other dental problems.

Yet, according to the research, most adults admit to skipping this step more often than not.

Today is National Flossing Day, so what better time is there to commit to starting this habit?

While you’re out and about on Black Friday, be sure to put dental floss on your shopping list, and follow the steps in this helpful video on the proper flossing technique.

Your smile will thank you!
