1. Floss Once Per Day
One of the easiest and most important preventive dentistry tips you should incorporate into your daily life is flossing once per day. Flossing is important for removing debris, bacteria, and plaque from between your teeth and underneath your gum line. It helps prevent both cavities and gum disease.
We recommend flossing before you brush your teeth at night. The reason you should floss before you brush your teeth is that your toothbrush will help remove all the gunk that was leftover from flossing. Flossing before you brush your teeth before bed will ensure you go to sleep with the cleanest teeth possible and no bacteria has time to settle in your mouth while you sleep.
