Many people think brushing their teeth regularly is enough to prevent cavities and gum disease...it isn't. If you are just brushing, you are not cleaning a portion of your teeth. Brushing does only half the job! Flossing is a very important part of dental care. You need to floss every day to clean the surfaces between your teeth. If you don't remove the plaque regularly, it can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and loss of teeth.

Here's a little true or false quiz to test your knowledge of...Flossing! 1. It isn't necessary to floss back teeth. (False) 2. Flossing only removes plaque from between teeth. (False - it also cleans up under the gumline) 3. It is important to floss gently. (True) 4. Flossing a couple of times a week is enough. (False - floss every day!) 5. Young children should have their teeth flossed. (True - if they have teeth, they should be flossed) How was your score? Feel free to ask us any questions you may have.
