Your Corona Dentist Explains: Flossing Rumors

Have you heard any rumblings regarding your dental hygiene recently? In the past? Just today? If you read or heard a rumor of any kind about your flossing, whether you need to do it, etc., then you might be ready to celebrate. This is particularly if you heard a rumor that you don’t need to floss. However, before you jump for joy and throw a party, we suggest you stop and recognize that sometimes too-good-to-be-true rumors are just that: Rumors. How to figure out what’s really going on when it comes to your flossing requirements? Well, your Corona dentist is happy to explain, of course!

Sounds Great But It’s A Rumor

What did you hear, your Corona dentist wonders? Did you hear specifically that you don’t really need to floss? It’s just a rumor. Yep, even if you read it in the newspaper. If it’s not backed by dental teams and announced by the ADA (American Dental Association), then it’s likely the result of some studies that weren’t conducted very thoroughly. It sounds cool but it’s something to ignore.

The Truth Of The Matter

The truth is that your Corona dentist still recommends that you floss every day. Just one time every day. Why, you wonder? Well, because when you follow through with this and you brush (and you also stay on top of visits for cleanings), then you are checking off all the boxes for protecting your oral health.
