Ok, the results are in…
88% of you voted for flossing as best. Well, according to my hygienist (not a licensed dentist, mind you!) flossing is more important. She claimed that one’s whole health improves while flossing. I expected her to tell me next that a pot of gold was being guarded by leprechauns in the nearby forest.
She proceeded to tell me that mouthwash was basically useless — except for Listerine. Something about “essential oils” that the other mouthwashes don’t have.
So as my father-in-law put it, anyone want to buy some mouthwash?
I hereby publicly apologize to my wife for doubting her clear dental wisdom. And pass the floss.
