People who floss every day are taking a significant step in keeping their teeth clean and healthy.

Homecare and Perio Involvement

If you have gum pockets or lost bone around your teeth due to periodontal disease, regular brushing and flossing are not enough to remove the plaque from your teeth. Instead, it takes special instruments and techniques.
