Importance of Flossing

Do you find yourself dusting off your box of floss right before your dental check-up? 

Regular flossing is not just something that makes your hygienist happy but it is an important part of having a happy healthy body.

Flossing is the removal of plaque buildup between your gums and teeth that your toothbrush can’t reach.By removing the plaque and its potentially harmful bacteria from your gums you are preventing it from entering your bloodstream.

Gum disease is a common issue for about half of the population. In the past, our blog has touched on the effects of gum disease on our heart and diabetic patients. New research was presented at the American Association for Cancer Research’s annual convention regarding certain types of gum bacteria and pancreatic cancer.
