Flossing can be one of the simplest, most effective ways for individuals to improve their dental health, but many people avoid regular flossing because they don't know how beneficial it can be or don't have access to supplies.
In an effort to fight this lack of flossing, Dental Health America, a charitable group that works to increase access to dental care and education, recently announced it would begin an initiative to supply 30,000 underprivileged children with oral flossers.
Beth Truett, president of the group, said that flossing is central to the dental health of all Americans, and that the program would help many needy children gain access to important supplies that they may not be able to obtain otherwise.
"One of [our] key messages is how important it is to brush and floss daily for improved oral and systemic health," she said. "This not only helps communities and the school oral health programs that serve them but helps to ensure that these programs are sustained for years to come."
The American Dental Association suggests that individuals should floss at least once per day.
