    Yes, Flossing Is Good for You

    Keep flossing, friends. But how effectively do you floss your teeth? The difference between reaping the benefits of flossing – or missing out –lies in effective flossing.

    • Another study reveals that children who flossed teeth on school days for two years had a 40 percent reduction in the risk of cavities.
