I’m excited to be speaking at the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show which is taking place on 18 and 19 May at the NEC...
Health Truth or Scare is BBC1’s excellent day to day health investigatory programme. This week, the programme investigates claims made last summer, that flossing is a waste of time. I am interested in this topic, like all dentists, as we advise our patients to use flossing as a part of their oral hygiene routine.
The findings of the programme are interesting. There is a great experiment using the members of a choral society in nearby Salford. Furthermore, they are surprised by the results and we hear some interesting conversation about attitudes to flossing.
Have I changed my views? No.
Regular flossing and the use of interdental brushes are key to good oral healthcare .
