To prevent costly dental visits, it is a good practice to floss your teeth daily.  It is best to floss at night time.  Flossing will remove any food debris that your toothbrush does not and prevent plaque build-up which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.  Good oral hygene contributes to your overall well being.  Studies have shown that bad oral hygiene has led to gum disease, heart disease and other detrimental health problems.
