Mount Pleasant, S.C (WCBD)- A recent article out by a prominent news agency claims flossing your teeth adds no health benefits to your oral hygiene. Doctor John Assey with Assey Dental Associates says, that article is absolutely false.
Dr. Assey explains that flossing your teeth is essential for having great oral health. He says, there are three main reasons supporting his position.
First is that flossing removes the plaque on your teeth which if left untreated can cause cavities. Flossing also preserves the bone that supports your teeth, keeping them healthy and strong. Lastly, flossing and brushing your teeth prevents gum disease.
