The day after Thanksgiving is an important day.

No, we aren’t talking about Black Friday.

We are talking about National Flossing Day!

According to a recent survey by the American Dental Association, only 40 percent of Americans say they floss daily. That’s in spite of the fact that the ADA recommends flossing every day.

Flossing, along with brushing and regular professional dental cleanings, can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

So, take one minute today watch the ADA video below about proper flossing technique. Then, let today be the day you start a new healthy habit.

Weddell Dental will be happy to provide your professional cleanings, too. Call our Bloomington, MN office at 952-679-1365 or use our online form to request an appointment.
