It is crucial to avoid these cavities before they develop in the first place. In this video, you will learn how to protect your teeth and avoid cavities.
Flossing may seem like an annoyance to many. However, it is the key to keeping your teeth healthy and preventing cavities. Cavities love to form in between teeth. This is because food particles get stuck between teeth and can provide an excellent source of food to those bacteria if not removed promptly. Flossing is the best way to dislodge these food particles. Otherwise, they will simply remain their until the bacteria eats them and turns them into tooth-burning acid.
