Flossing, Is It Important?
To floss or not to floss, that is the question. There have been some news reports and huge debate amongst the dental community recently surrounding the issue of flossing. A recent report from the Associated Press stated that the experts are saying that there is weak evidence that daily flossing is beneficial. The report has drawn media attention and has people questioning their dental providers if the rumors are true. What your dentist wants you to know is that cleaning between your teeth is important, whether that is achieved by flossing, using a toothpick, waterpik or an interdental brush. As long as you are stimulating the tissue between your teeth and are able to remove food particles then you will increase your chances of saving your teeth and bone and cut down the chance of decay. Ask your hygienist what he/she thinks would be the best option for you. Give Power Ranch Dental a call at (480) 988- 2282 if you have any other questions or concerns.
