Floss Then Brush According to the ADA

To keep your teeth healthy you know that regular brushing and flossing are important.  However, the American Dental Association has proven that it is better to brush your teeth AFTER you floss.  Test studies have proven that once you remove the debris from the hard-to-reach areas with proper flossing it is easier for the fluoride in the toothpaste to reach those areas and protect them from decay.  It is also good to stick to the TWO minute rule when brushing.  Brushing your teeth any more than two minutes will start to wear down your tooth enamel and inflame the gum tissue.  For optimal oral health, instead of thinking you need to brush and floss change your way of thinking to floss and brush!!
