Don’t Forget to Floss

Oral health is incredibly important to our overall health. “Flossing is even more important than brushing when it comes to preventing periodontal (gum) disease and tooth loss,” according to WebMD. Flossing helps remove the plague in between our teeth that brushing just can’t reach, especially in our back teeth.
