Dental Flossing – Beneficial to Good Oral Hygiene?

Despite recent stories from various media outlets and blog sites, including the New York Times, Associated Press and The Guardian, in which they questioned the benefits of using dental floss, stating that there is no clear correlation between dental flossing and good oral hygiene, the American Dental Association (ADA) maintains that frequent use of dental “flossing is effective” in promoting oral health.

In addition to the ADA’s claim, other agencies including the US Department of Health and Human Services identify dental flossing as a supporting recommendation similar to brushing your teeth.
