If you’re like the majority of patients, you don’t floss consistently. The first few days before and after your six month dental checkups, you probably floss, so you don’t feel guilty when the dentist asks whether or not you’ve been flossing.

In this post, we’ll explain some of the reasons why flossing is such an important part of your preventive dentistry routine to maintain your healthiest smile.
