The Benefits of (Dental) Flossing
Flossing helps clean the gaps between teeth, making gum infections and cavities from bacteria build-up less likely. Brushing can only clean the surfaces of teeth, but flossing can remove debris from hard-to-reach places and below the gum line. While flossing may not seem as instantly gratifying or effective as brushing, it does about 40% of the work required to remove plaque from teeth.
Don't Skip the Floss!
By participating in the SmileMakers Flossing for Floss campaign, you'll help spread the word about the importance of flossing as a part of a good oral health regimen, you'll encourage your patients to keep their teeth and gums healthy, and you'll get to do something fun with your team! Don't miss out on this opportunity to get some extra floss for your office!
