Research has shown that the percentage of people who take the time to thoroughly floss their teeth is low. And yet, an Aurora dentist can tell you that flossing is one of the best things you can do to promote good oral health.

Flossing reduces the risk of periodontal disease by controlling the buildup of plaque that forms along the gum line.

Whitening is fine, but it’s only a temporary fix. Brushing and flossing, and seeing your Aurora dentist on a regular basis is what will keep your mouth healthy for the long run.
