Is It Better to Floss Before or After Brushing?


This is a great question, but first let's look at what flossing does and why it's important. Flossing contributes to good dental hygiene because it lifts and removes plaque and food in between your teeth. Brushing also removes plaque and food debris, but the bristles of a toothbrush can’t reach deep in between teeth to remove it all. Therefore, flossing helps keep your mouth as clean as possible.


So is it better to floss before or after you brush? There's really no wrong answer, as long as you floss, however we believe that when you floss and then brush, the brushing action removes these released particles from the mouth. As a result, there’s less dental plaque in your mouth, and you’ll have a lower risk of developing gum disease.
