Time to tell the truth about some of your hygiene habits. Today, it is flossing. 

Not sure where or why flossing teeth has gotten such a bad wrap? It isn't a painful activity, it doesn't really take that and it's quite beneficial. So why, do we as Americans, continue to duck and dodge this simple task and then lie about it?

A recent poll from the American Dental Association reveals the alarming truth. We Americans hate to floss, but we love to lie about it.

  • Only four out of ten of us floss once a day
  • One in five never floss
  • Nearly one out of three of us have lied to our dentist about flossing

So, without judgement, it is time to tell the truth.
