Why is flossing important for our hendersonville and nashville patients?

Flossing is only important on the teeth you want to keep. What I tell my patients is go home and brush your teeth really really well. You will feel like you cleaned them really well.  Then go back and floss and you will see just how much a tooth brush cannot get to. Most of the cavities I see in my office are from not flossing. If you dont floss you also run the chance of getting gum disease which can negatively affect your heart
