Floss or Brush First?

If you’ve ever found yourself pondering the age-old question of whether to floss first or brush first, you’re not alone. It’s a dental dilemma that has sparked debates, discussions, and maybe even a little bit of confusion. But fear not, because we’re here to break it down for you.

Team Floss First

Proponents of flossing first swear by this sequence as it helps to loosen the food particles in the nooks and crannies of your teeth. This way you’re setting yourself up for success as the toothbrush bristles sweep away any stragglers!

Team Brush First

The brush-first enthusiasts argue that this approach is the way to go. By starting with brushing, you’re getting the bulk of the plaque and food debris off your teeth, leaving just the last stubborn bits for your trusty floss. Not to mention, flossing after brushing gets you spreading that fluoride goodness in-between your pearly whites for extra protection against decay.

The Verdict

So, what’s the final verdict on the floss-first vs. brush-first debate? Well, here’s the scoop – there’s no one right answer! The key is to find what works best for you and your pearly whites. Whether you’re Team Floss First or Team Brush First, the important thing is to keep up with your oral hygiene routine and show your teeth some love on the daily.
