One of the biggest oral health risks you face is gum disease, an infection that deteriorates gum and bone tissues your teeth need to remain strong and functional.

Yet a shocking number of people admit that they don’t do the one simple thing that can help prevent that from happening.

We’re talking about flossing!

Spending just one minute each day flossing between your teeth could mean the difference between irreversible damage to your gums and saving your smile. Watch this video to understand what happens when you skip this essential oral hygiene step, and ask yourself if it’s time that you commit to start flossing now for better oral health!
