Dental Flossing: Is It Really Necessary?

People can remember to brush their teeth, but when it comes to dental flossing-well that’s when I get the questions.

“Do I have to floss everyday?” That’s a question I get asked very often. Or, “Is it really necessary to floss everyday?”

There’s the old saying, “You just floss the teeth you want to keep.” It comes down to choices. Do you want to keep your teeth or not?

The reality is most people don’t floss everyday. In my practice I see how much a difference dental flossing makes. Flossing everyday is so important I reinforce that with almost every patient that has a cleaning done.
