If left untreated, gum disease can spread to the rest of your body and affect your general health. Flossing can prevent gum disease from happening in the first place, but it must be done properly in order to be effective.
This video explains the dangers of periodontal disease and how essential flossing is to your oral health. You’ll see how to floss properly, ensuring that you clean between each tooth and below the gum line. Completely removing plaque leads to better dental health as well as improved general health and a lower risk of medical complications.
