What Is Dental Floss?

Dental Floss

Dental floss is string sometimes coated with wax. Using it each day keeps the dentist away. Why? Because flossing is a way of cleaning your teeth and gums. When you pull dental floss between your teeth, it reaches tiny places your toothbrush can't and pulls out bits of food and plaque that got left behind. So get out that floss and get to work!
