Need to know: When extra flossing is required

Some foods get stuck in the gaps between your teeth – spend extra time flossing to remove this debris before brushing your teeth.

Key takeaways:

– Even nutritious foods like spinach and broccoli may require extra flossing as pieces often stick between teeth.

– Sticky caramel should be removed from teeth before the sugar can lead to enamel damage.

– Popcorn kernels can wedge between your gums and should be removed carefully.

See your dentist if you would like more information on flossing and brushing techniques.
