“You don’t have to floss every tooth!… Just the ones you wanna save!”
Does flossing really make a difference? How often do I need to Floss?
In my estimation we see less than 10% of patients flossing in any type of consistency. I personally know dentists, yes dentists, who don’t manage to floss their own teeth!
Did you know that 30% of your teeth surfaces are not cleaned when we neglect flossing each night. And the long term results? Yellow teeth
“If you want to deplete your patient population, convince them to floss!” -J. Barnard

Before or After brushing!? This is the question…;)
