Floss daily

Do not underestimate that value of flossing in helping your teeth stay clean. Flossing helps to remove plaque and little pieces of food that may not have been able to be removed when brushing your teeth.

You could alternatively choose to floss your teeth before brushing them. You will feel the difference in your mouth once you have properly flossed your teeth.
