You’ve undoubtedly noticed that dental professionals tend to ask whether or not you floss your teeth regularly. The question makes sense given that regular flossing is considered an integral component of oral care on par with regular brushing. That’s because flossing is effective at cleaning food particles, plaque, and bacteria between the teeth where a toothbrush’s bristles don’t reach.
Over the past decade, “occlusion” has emerged as an important component of dentistry. In fact, many dentists now consider healthy occlusion to be as important to the maintenance of dental health as preventing tooth decay and/or gum disease. Some dentists even believe that occlusion should serve as the underlying base for all dental treatment in general.
