Dentists can’t talk enough about the benefits of flossing your teeth. But quite often their plea goes unheeded by patients who ultimately miss out on the benefits. But just why are dentists so enthusiastic about a little piece of white string? Well, for starters floss does a terrific job of aiding the removal of plaque from between teeth, which helps in preventing gum disease and cavities.
