Go Easy With Toothpicks

If you don’t have floss, a toothpick will work to remove food stuck between teeth, but be gentle. It’s easy to press too hard and damage your gums, or even worse, break off a toothpick below the gum line.

Floss helps remove food from between teeth better than a toothpick and fights plaque buildup by getting rid of bacteria that form there.
