We recommend flossing at least once a day for both our adult and youth patients. This is the only way to effectively remove plaque from the proximal surface of teeth, which is where they come together and touch. Following this procedure daily will significantly reduce the risk of both gum disease and tooth decay.
Many types of floss aids are available such as floss forks, floss picks, and threaders. If you have trouble flossing, have braces, or crown & bridge work, your dental hygienist can teach you the best way to reach these areas.
