Do you find yourself flossing the week before your 6 month hygiene appointment but forget to keep flossing as soon as you leave the dental office? Did you know your hygienist can tell if you are flossing regularly or every 6 months? In an article by TIME, it was reported that, “flossing on a daily basis not only gets rid of food trapped between your teeth but also removes the film of bacteria that forms before it has a chance to harden into plaque – something your toothbrush cannot do!” At Gunnerson Dental we whole-heartedly agree!
