You may have read or heard about a recent report stating that there is insufficient evidence to support what dentists have been preaching for decades: floss your teeth. The report claims that the effectiveness of flossing has never been adequately researched and, therefore, the evidence is “weak and very unreliable.” At Painesville Dental Group, we beg to differ. As your dentist in Painesville, we have seen the consequences of not flossing and stand by our recommendation to continue with daily flossing despite reports to the contrary.
