Women’s Health (1/2, Mateo) states that flossing regularly is “crucial to keeping your teeth and gums healthy,” noting American Dental Association spokesperson Dr. Maria Lopez Howell explains “the point of it is to remove the buildup of plaque between your teeth.” The article adds that “not flossing can lead to bad breath, cavities,” and other oral health problems.
The Oral Health Topics on ADA.org and MouthHealthy.org provide additional information on interdental cleaning for dental professionals and patients. The ADA provides a list of floss and interdental cleaners with the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
