Flossing should be a daily part of your life.We have our eye on you, floss floppers. You know who you are. You can’t hide from us! Did you honestly think that brushing alone could rid your mouth of all the bacteria that needs to go? We sure hope not.

Flossing is just as important, if not more when it comes to keeping your oral health in tip-top shape. We’ve heard tons of excuses on why patients aren’t flossing, and we always try explaining why flossing is so vital. Our office in Los Angeles, CA wants you to know that incorporating flossing into your daily dental hygiene regimen is the smart thing to do. All that food from the night before that didn’t make it into your stomach is sitting in between your teeth, just waiting for other bacteria to join so they can throw a party in your mouth. Squash the party and start treating your teeth like your best friends. Start flossing!
