To floss or not to floss…?!?

 

floss

 

Given the recent news regarding flossing we thought we’d weigh in on the evidence and let everybody know that they shouldn’t toss that box of floss just yet. Although good research studies on the subject are lacking most dental professionals are still strongly in support of that little string!

Reducing plaque and food in the gums is a very important factor in preventing the inflammation that can lead to gum disease. Additionally, dentists and physicians continue to learn more about the complexities of the body and how inflammation of any kind can be harmful. Many interesting studies are currently looking at the links between inflammation and osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even certain types of cancer.

We thought this article was short and sweet and explained why good flossing studies are not being done.
