There are some foods that like getting stuck between your teeth and may need some extra flossing to remove!

Key takeaways:

– Popcorn, caramel and toffee definitely need removing as sugary foods can lead to bacterial multiplication and plaque formation.

– Broccoli, spinach and pineapple are much better for you, but can also get stuck between your teeth.

– Your dentist will advise avoiding starchy foods like potato chips and white bread as these become sticky while stuck in between your teeth.

“A little bit of floss goes a long way when it comes to dislodging food and protecting your smile.”
