It has officially been a year since Flossgate 2016 when the media published a report that flossing was no longer proven effective and was not necessary to prevent cavities.  It caused quite a stir!  But here it is, a year later, and we are back to flossing as we should.  For those who saw this report it had an element of truth but was taken out of context.

To reaffirm: Flossing is the most effective way to clean between teeth.  There is no good substitute for this!  Flossing remains highly recommended by dental professionals to prevent cavities.

With a bargain price of 50 flossers for $1 at the Dollar Store – it has never been easier to floss!
