Are We All Brushing Our Teeth Wrong?
Most people bush their teeth, floss, and then rinse but a dentist in England has come out with a new way to the old routine that might make you second guess yourself.
Dr. Matthew Lloyd says people should floss first to get food particles loose, then rinse with mouthwash and THEN brush your teeth.
"It's better to remove plaque and food debris with floss before rinsing the bacteria away with mouth wash. Ideally, you should finish your oral care routine by brushing your teeth. That way, the toothpaste stays in contact with your teeth and gums longer and will provide better protection." - Dr. Matthew Lloyd
When you think about it, it makes sense PLUS there's the added bonus eliminating that burning mouthwash aftermath.
