Is flossing truly necessary?

Updated: Jan 27

There's no avoiding the necessity to floss between your teeth on a daily basis. Food and plaque are removed from between the teeth or under the gumline. If you forget to floss, plaque turns into tartar, which causes pockets by generating wedges and widening the area between gums and teeth. Gums recede and teeth loosen with time.

The outcome can be achieved by using either waxed or unwaxed floss. Another simple approach is to use flossing picks or interdental brushes.
