The majority of people floss after they brush their teeth. Recently, someone mentioned that it’s best to floss before brushing so that the debris caught between teeth can be loosened and carried away as we brush. It makes sense, when you think about it.
Unless your dentist advises otherwise, finishing your flossing, brushing, rinsing routine with an alcohol-free mouthwash is a good idea.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS,) is used in bubble baths, shampoos, liquid soaps and other products where a good lather is expected. It is also a common ingredient in toothpastes. People that experience frequent chapped lips, cold sores or other mouth and gum irritations may especially want to consider avoiding dental products that contain SLS.
Young Living has a line of dental care that includes alcohol free mouthwash/rinse, and SLS free toothpaste, not forgetting the floss that contains Thieves essential oil blend and peppermint essential oil, two layers of essential oils to further “protect and defend.”
