Why do I need to floss?

Flossing is just as important for healthy teeth and gums as brushing your teeth. Flossing allows you to remove plaque and bacteria between your teeth and just below the gum line where your toothbrush can't reach.

Unfortunately, many people are not flossing their teeth correctly. Our dental hygienist will be happy to review your flossing habits with you and show you good technique so you can get the most benefit out of this important dental tool.
