Do I really need to floss every day?

 

Yes. The American Dental Association recommends cleaning between your teeth once a day. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into calculus or tartar. Cleaning between your teeth may also help prevent gum disease and cavities. You can use dental floss or another product specifically made for cleaning between your teeth, like a dental pick, pre-threaded flosser, tiny brushes that reach between the teeth, water flosser or wooden plaque remover.
