Importance of Flossing in Glendale CA, Dr. Lucio H. Kim, DDS

This is a good perspective on the "Flossing doesn't work" story...

My Thoughts

The parachute analogy is very good.  Same reason why they don't do studies on how cigarettes cause cancer. It's just common sense.  Letting bacteria sit anywhere in your body for too long going unchecked is never a good idea.  Gum disease has been linked to cardiac issues, diabetes, low fetal birth weight, even Alzheimers.  Not to mention not having teeth to chew with.  The flossing will save you thousands of dollars in dental work...crowns, root canals, dental implants.  Not to mention countless hours in the dental office while you could be doing something eating at a nice restaurant...with your own teeth!  If you have any questions about this story or flossing in general, let Dr Kim know and he will be more than happy to go over it with you!  Let floss be your parachute!
