Are you someone who has questions about flossing? If so, you’re not alone. There are many people in the world who also have questions about flossing. This can lead to many ineffective flossing routines. So, our dentists, Dr. Scott Thompson and Dr. Sara Samaha, are happy to help you find the answers you need by giving you the answers to common flossing questions, like:

Q: Why do I need to floss?
A: You need to floss because flossing helps you remove plaque from between your teeth and along the gumline. Plaque is a dangerous substance that promotes tooth decay and gum disease, which are two very dangerous dental issues.

Q: How often should I floss?
A: You should floss daily, like right before bed at night. Many prefer to floss before bed because they are done eating for the day.

Q: What product should I use to floss?
A: It doesn’t matter which product you use. You can use dental floss, flossing sticks, water flossers and other products as long as they properly clean the smile and care for the teeth and gums.
