Although we have all been told that we need to floss daily, many look at flossing like an added chore. As a result, many skip out on flossing. In fact, as much as 27 percent of adults lie to their dentists about flossing. In addition, a recent study found that only four out of ten Americans floss their teeth every day, with 20 percent of Americans admitting to have never flossed. With a recent article by the Associated Press claiming that flossing is not important to preventing gum disease, as your dentist in Los Angeles, Dr. Latner is here to tell you that flossing DOES matter!

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.
