Tupelo, MS - Dr. Richard Caron "Your Dental Health" Do I still Need to Floss?
Your dental health brought to you by Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.
You may have seen recent headlines claiming there is no indication that flossing improves oral health, but according to the American Dental Association, flossing should still be part of your daily oral health routine. Researchers at the ADA have found that flossing daily resulted in a significant reduction of cavities because flossing can reach food and debris that would be left behind by brushing alone.
Flossing also helps prevent periodontal disease, gingivitis, and plaque build up. To maintain good oral health, the ADA recommends brushing twice per day, flossing once per day, and visiting your dentist regularly. And always ask your dentist for instructions on how to best use dental floss or other flossers. For your dental health, I'm Dr. Richard Caron.
