When asked recently, “What would be your most important tip for your patients?,” Sue shared the following:
“Don’t forget to floss! I know that it is a chore and a lot of times my patients may forget to floss after brushing. Especially if you are rushing out of the door or heading to bed. However, flossing can help you remove food particles and other detrimental substances that brushing regularly cannot. Flossing allows you to reach deep between your teeth where the toothbrush bristles cannot reach or even mouthwash cannot wash away. We recommend flossing at least once a day.” ~ Sue
