Use of dental floss
According to M. Soledad Cepeda (2017) and Vikram Arora (2014) good oral hygiene practices are widely considered important to maintain good oral health. Evidence based articles show that in general, most of the individuals remove only around 50% of the plaque from their teeth even when brushing for two minutes. This is why flossing has long been considered an indispensable part of the oral hygiene routine, indeed using it can help people control interproximal biofilm formation, remove plaque and prevent its accumulation. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), 80% of the plaque can be removed by this method.
