Flossing is a crucial part of your dental health routine that many people overlook.
Flossing has been shown to be very effective at reducing plaque between teeth. This helps to reduce the risk of cavities as well as periodontal disease. The latter is especially important given the negative effect of periodontal disease on your overall health. In fact, the American Medical Association and a myriad of medical journals report patients who have healthy mouths live at least seven years longer. So if you want to keep your smile and be able to chew, and be healthy then you only need to floss the teeth (and body) you want to.
