To Floss or Not to Floss?

Is Flossing effective? We say YES!  Recently in the news they were reporting that flossing was ineffective in reducing cavities and gum disease.  This is not true!!  When you floss your teeth, do you get any food debris or plaque out?  Pretty sure you do, I know we do, whether we are flossing our own teeth or our patients' teeth!  We have seen the improvements that flossing can make first hand.  You can also use interdental tools such as floss picks, sticks or brushes.  Anything to di...

Kettle Corn, Cotton Candy, Caramel Apples – Who Can Resist??

Can’t believe it is that time of year again, where everyone is getting geared up for the local fairs, buying equipment for fall sports, and clothes for the upcoming school year. Myself, I love the fairs. I love trying out all the foods, and with that, there are always some cautions too. For example, caramel apples, the sticky, gooey goodness is delicious, but hard on the teeth if you have braces, or temporary crowns placed.  Take it from my past experience… Don’t bite into a caramel ap...
