Molesey dental hygienists offer best advice about flossing
Dental floss is an efficient way of removing unwanted food and plaque from the teeth and is an alternative tool to using an interdental brush, it is composed of either nylon filaments or of plastic ribbons and is often flavoured to help with freshness of breath. Dental hygienists and dentists such those in the town of Molesey urge the daily use of floss to increase oral hygiene. In combination with brushing flossing can vastly improve your dental health and keep it that way, regular flossing can prevent severe problems such as, gum disease, dental caries (cavities), and bad breath (halitosis). Its use is very straightforward and it comes in a variety of shapes and sizes usually long and string like with a dispenser, however there are some floss brushes which are just as effective. The floss is placed between the teeth and scraped along the edges particularly along the gum areas as this is where food and bacteria tend to build up.
