Dr. Funk's Take On The Benefits Of Flossing
Recently, an article came out about a study claiming flossing has no benefits for your gums/mouth/teeth (read that here).There's theory and there's reality, flossing never hurts and 1 million hygienist can't be wrong. The danger of this study is that it is one study, one opinion, yet it get's front page coverage. People are citing this study and say, "why floss?". Just like the study where researchers gave lab mice twice their weight in fluoride and some mice developed tumors. They decided that fluoride caused cancer and it began a fluoride debate. The more damage will occur to teeth by not flossing, there are probably some situations where flossing is not beneficial to certain people, but there are way more situations where flossing is important and vital. The little time it takes each day is preferable then the time, money, and pain of a tooth ache, or extraction, or gum disease.
