Flossing your teeth once a day is an important aspect to protecting your oral and overall heath. Unfortunately, too many people underestimate the benefits of flossing, which is why only four out of ten adults take the time to floss their teeth daily. However, by skipping out on flossing and only relying on brushing your teeth, you are placing your health at risk. Lack of flossing leads to gum disease. Gum disease is directly linked to causing serious health complications, such as heart disease. As your dentist in Los Angeles, Dr. Latner does not want you to place your oral or overall health at risk due to not flossing daily.
