May the Floss be With You

Oral hygiene is an important aspect of overall health, and flossing is a key component of maintaining healthy teeth and gums. At Smiley Tooth Pediatric Dentistry, we believe that flossing can be a fun and easy habit to develop, especially when you add a little Star Wars flair. May the Floss be With You!  


Benefits of Flossing 


<p>Flossing is important for removing food particles and plaque from between your teeth and under your gums. It helps prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. By flossing regularly, you can keep your teeth and gums healthy and avoid the need for more extensive dental work in the future.
