Dentists have long taught people the benefits of flossing as part of good oral health.
A new made in Manitoba study put the practice under the microscope and the results are surprising.
Dentists actually asked some of their patients to stop flossing and now their work is changing the way some people clean between their teeth.
For years she flossed at least once a day but the results were disappointing.
“I just noticed that my gums weren’t pink and tight to my teeth,” said Neuman. “They were ever so slightly inflamed in the front and I couldn’t figure out why because my oral hygiene is impeccable.”
Frustrated and worried, Neuman sought help from specialists and started flossing twice a day but there was no improvement.
