    Only 18.5% of Americans never floss. You are missing out on a simple way to make a big difference in the health of your mouth.

Floss removes food trapped between the teeth and removes the film of bacteria that forms there before it turns to plaque, which can cause inflamed gums (gingivitis), cavities, and tooth loss. Try flossing just one tooth to get started.
