Ever wondered what all the fuss is about flossing? Watch this video to find out more.

Flossing is an essential part of any oral health care routine. It helps remove plaque from between your teeth, in areas that the toothbrush can't reach. It also helps to prevent gum disease and dental decay. Plaque that is not removed regularly can eventually harden into calculus or tartar.

People who have difficulty handling dental floss may prefer to use another kind of interdental cleaner such as special brushes. If you use interdental cleaners, ask your dentist how to use them properly to avoid injuring your gums.
