Dr. L. King Scott and his team understand that your days are long and busy. Between work and school, family and friends, there hardly seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done. And by the end of the day, all you want is your comfy bed and soft pillow. There is, however, one more important thing you have to do before your go to bed. Your nightly oral hygiene routine is critically important not only to your oral health, but your general health, too. And that routine must include flossing. Brushing your teeth alone does not remove the plaque that can build up between your teeth throughout the day. Proper flossing helps to remove this plaque, which if left to accumulate can lead to gum disease and systemic ailments.
