DID YOU MISS THE FLOSSING CHALLENGE?

Why does Dr. Alan Macdonald recommend daily flossing? 90% of tooth decay occurs between the teeth, flossing can prevent this decay. That is because flossing is a vitally important part of your oral hygiene routine. By removing plaque that accumulates between your teeth, flossing aids in the prevention of tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque consists of bacteria that can attack your teeth and gums.
