This month is Gum Disease Awareness Month. It’s a good time to remind you that flossing should be part of your daily oral care routine. Yes, we can tell when you haven’t been flossing. According to a recent American Dental Association survey, only 4 in 10 people do floss once per day (which is what the ADA recommends). Flossing is the best way to remove food particles, bacteria, and plaque from the spaces between your teeth and gums. Doing this can reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum infections.
