Floss once a day
Floss once a day. Plaque is a sticky layer of bacteria, and if left on your teeth it can cause gum disease and tooth decay. It is also the reason why you may need to have your teeth scaled. However well you brush, you are unlikely to remove all the plaque, especially from those tricky areas between teeth and under the gum line. Most people only need to floss once a day. It is best to try and do this when you give your teeth the last brush of the day, before bedtime. Flossing can require a bit of practice to get right. We will be happy to give you a demonstration next time we see you - just ask.
