    Should You Floss Before Or After Brushing Teeth?

    teeth health smile dentistPerhaps there is no definite answer to this question. However, the fact is that you should floss at least once every day.

    Key takeaways:

    – Practicing good oral hygiene is of utmost importance in keeping your teeth in good health.

    – Flossing before brushing is recommended since it will ensure that people don’t forget this tedious task.

    – Another school of thought recommends flossing AFTER brushing to make sure that fluoride gets into the spaces between the teeth.

    The bacteria around the teeth organize themselves as colonies and [flossing] stirs them up. If we get in there and stir them up every 24 hours we render them less dangerous.
