In addition to string flossing or water picking, there are several best practices that are associated with good oral health. They include:

  • brushing the teeth thoroughly twice a day
  • flossing once a day
  • flossing with both string and water, if possible
  • visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings, X-rays, and check-ups

Good dental hygiene is not just essential for healthy teeth and gums. Good dental care is known to impact one's overall health as well.
