Don’t Toss the Floss from Your Daily Routine

The Associated Press reported yesterday that the medical benefits of flossing are unproven due to the insufficient amount of evidence provided by many studies.

While there may be little evidence to actually prove that flossing is effective, there is also little to disprove it and the majority of dental experts still agree that flossing is an essential and beneficial part of a healthy oral hygiene regimen.

In fact, the American Dental Association released a statement yesterday in which it states that:

“…interdental cleaners such as floss are an essential part of taking care of your teeth and gums. Cleaning between teeth removes plaque that can lead to cavities or gum disease…”

Their statement also mentions that there are more than 500 species of bacteria that can be found in plaque buildup. Some of the bacteria are good, but the bad bacteria when combined with water, food debris, and other compounds can lead to disease in the gums and teeth.

Though the evidence to prove the effectiveness of flossing may be lacking, the experts still agree that you shouldn’t toss the floss from your daily routine.
