Most of the population when asked that question every six months, ‘do you floss every day?’ tells a little white lie by answering ‘yes.’ However, according to your Glendale Family Dentist at Hillside Dental Group,  flossing your gums is an extremely important part of dental hygiene.  We all know that, ideally, our patients would floss after every meal. We also understand those are some very high expectations. To make it easier, start by flossing once a day! Every night before bed made make sure to take a quick minute or two to get the crevices between your teeth. At your next appointment, we’ll be sure to congratulate you in the difference you’ve made with those one to two minute efforts each night.
