How often should I floss?

We recommend daily flossing. The purpose of flossing is to physically remove plaque (bacteria layer) from the teeth, so that it is not present to process food and release acid on to your tooth structure. The longer the plaque is in place, the more acid that area is exposed to and the tooth becomes soft, ie. decay begins.

Floss is just one tool we may recommend for cleaning between your teeth and below the gumline, where typical manual and electric toothbrushes cannot reach.

If you are finding flossing difficult, please always ask your Dimos Dental team for guidance as to what tools may help to make cleaning between your teeth easier and more effective.
