6/13/2016

Let's be real, most people do not floss often enough. The American Dental Association (ADA) strongly recommends flossing at least once a day. Brushing does not remove all plaque from your teeth.

Flossing will help you prevent plaque from hardening into calculus or tarter which causes gum disease. Please keep in mind that prevention is always easier and less costly than treatment. Oral care is more than just brushing your teeth and seeing your family dentist twice a year.
