Tupelo, MS Dentist- Dr. Richard Caron's "Your Dental Health" - Do I Really Need to Floss

http://www.tupelosmiles.com/ http://tupelodentist.com Do you ever wonder if you really need to floss? Well the answer is yes. Flossing removes plaque and debris that sticks to teeth and in between teeth. It polishes the surface of the teeth and controls bad breath. Plaque is a sticky layer of material containing bacteria that accumulates on teeth, including places where toothbrushes can't reach. This can lead to gum disease. By flossing your teeth daily you increase the chance of keeping them for a lifetime and decrease the chance of getting gum disease.
