Reasons Why You Should Floss


Posted by Brushee Brand Publisher on May 11, 2016

Okay, we get it.

By now you may be screaming, enough already! We know flossing is important!

But did you know its just as important, if not even more, than brushing?

Research has shown that 30% of our mouth goes on unclean when we don’t floss.

For those of you who currently don’t have a flossing routine, we encourage you to start by plugging in a time at least once a day. And highly recommend flossing during the day after you’ve eaten meals. See, a majority of debris and plaque causing build up gathers throughout the day while we are away from our toothbrush and toothpaste.

So simply implementing a time once a day to give your mouth a quick clean is extremely effective for decreasing the chances of tooth decay, and other dental diseases that arise from plaque build up.

Grab A Brushee

The Brushee PocketSized Toothbrush is particularly effective at this, due to its portability, and features to easily brush and floss while on the go.

Having a Brushee on you, allows you to clean your mouth right after consuming food and beverages. So there is no plaque build up, and no reason to worry about flossing at night.

Additional Benefits To Flossing

So yes, we mentioned that flossing aides in removing plaque and other debris that stick to your teeth and mouth. However, did you know that flossing also polishes your teeth?

In fact, flossing is arguably the single most important tool for an overall clean. No doubt your toothbrush cleans along the surface of your teeth, and removes debris that sticks to the surface. However, floss gets in between your teeth and into those crevices that can often be hard to reach. Offering a much deeper level of clean and freshness.

What Type of Floss Should You Use

Floss has a wide variety of options for you to choose from. There’s waxed, unwaxed, floss with flavoring, as well as different sizes; such as wide and regular.

Wide floss, also know as dental tape, is often recommended for individuals who’ve had bridge work done in the past, and can be quite effective for teeth with wide gaps. Whereas waxed floss can be efficient for getting into those tight teeth and crevasses.

However, your most common floss is nylon, which we at Brushee found to be the strongest as well as most effective for cleaning,

But that isn’t to say that one is superior to others, they all clean and remove plaque quite effectively. So no need to overthink.

How Should You Floss

As most things, this is ultimately up to you. The most important factor is ensuring you get the ultimate clean. However, if you're utilizing a floss and pick device like the Brushee, the process is it quite simple.

All you have to do is maneuver the U-Shaped floss in between your teeth, and utilize the toothpick for those spots the U-Shaped may not happen to clean. It’s an easy and effortless process since you no longer have to worry about long strings of tape that other floss’s require you to use.

How Effective Are Toothpicks

Toothpicks are extremely effective for removing food stuck in between teeth. However, don’t press to hard. A nice subtle pick in between the gums is all you need to dislodge any particles.

So we don’t want to hear any excuses for poor oral hygiene.
