If there’s one thing you can start doing now to improve your oral health, it’s putting dental floss on your Black Friday shopping list. 

That’s because it’s also National Flossing Day, a time to dedicate yourself to this crucial dental habit that studies show many people don’t practice on a daily basis.

In about a minute each day, you can floss your teeth to remove food particles in those hard-to-reach places in your mouth that your toothbrush misses.

This will prevent plaque and tartar buildup, cavities, and gum disease, and it will also make your routine dental checkups go more smoothly.

Flossing every single day is a small but essential part of maintaining a healthy mouth, so commit to adding this step to your daily oral care routine! If you want to make sure you’re flossing properly, take a look at this quick video from the American Dental Association.
