Wow! There has been much discussion in regards to the benefit of dental flossing. Let’s set the record straight.
Why do we floss?
Floss is the only thing that can completely get in between your teeth to remove bacteria.
There are five surfaces on each tooth and if you do not floss, you leave two of those surfaces full of bacteria.
If you are not a regular flosser, you may bleed when you floss for the first few weeks.
