Today Show does a segment on “Why We Don’t Need to Floss”

I saw this brief segment on The Today Show on Tuesday morning about why flossing may not be necessary. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of questions from patients about this. Interesting that they refer to a “new research” study, but there is no mention about who is doing this research and how scientific it is. With 30+ years of experience, I know that flossing helps reduce tooth decay and gum disease. Bottom line, sorry to tell you this, but I’m going to recommend that you keep on flossing!
