Have you flossed today?

Have you flossed today?

O.K. so you’ve heard that you need to floss at least once a day, right?  But do you remember why?   There are bacteria type critters that like to hide between your teeth to escape the wrath of your toothbrush.  Here they continue to feed on food spewing out cavity causing acid.   Worst yet, if allowed to remain for a long time, these bacteria invade and destroy gum tissue as well as, the bones and ligaments which support teeth.  Flossing removes these bacteria from between teeth so they can no longer cause problems.  So get flossing!!
