Time to Toss the Floss? You be the Judge!



- In 2016 the Associated Press reported that flossing does not have sufficient research to warrant its use on a daily basis. Morning shows, social media and professional associations were abuzz with this news creating the need for us to reconsider this 'holy grail' of preventive practices. Research has confirmed that only 2 – 10% floss regularly and effectively. In light of these statistics this seminar will review the history and research of string floss for interdental health and caries prevention. Are there other equally effective or more effective methods? Is it time to 'toss the floss'? This interactive session will empower you to consider other options that will increase patient health and satisfaction!



Learning Outcomes:


1. Integrate the latest research on interdental health tools and technologies.


2. Overview protocols, clinical interventions and strategies to address oral health needs of those who do NOT and will NOT floss.


3.Implement a new process of care that will empower you to 'Toss the Floss'
