Keep Flossing To Fight Periodontal Disease
- February 8, 2017
How often do you floss between your teeth? The American Dental Association recommends flossing daily, but a recent survey revealed that only 4 in 10 people say that they do.
If you are one of the 6 in 10 people who rarely or never clean between your teeth and gums, our dentist office in Columbia, SC, wants to encourage you to add this to your oral hygiene routine. With that in mind, we are sharing a short video by the ADA that explains how to floss correctly.
The Total Dental Care of South Carolina team wants to remind you that flossing removes plaque and small food particles from between your teeth. This helps to reduce your risk of gum disease, as do regular professional dental cleanings.
