Medical benefits of waxed dental floss unproven

HOLMDEL, N.J. (AP) — It's one of the most universal recommendations in all of public health: Floss daily to prevent gum disease and cavities.
Except there's little proof that flossing works.
Still, the federal government, dental organizations and manufacturers of floss have pushed the practice for decades. Dentists provide samples to their patients; the American Dental Association insists on its website that, "Flossing is an essential part of taking care of your teeth and gums."
The Associated Press actually paid writer Jeff Donn to do this story? Oooooo, it might not be necessary to floss your teeth! Floss manufacturers might be creating and funding studies to sell more floss! What motivated this guy? He tried it once and still got gum disease.

I started flossing a long time ago when my army buddy with awesome looking teeth told me what he does. I haven't had dental problems. I'm about to start coconut oil pulling too. My teeth aren't beautiful, but they arehealthy. "Floss the teeth you want to keep." --a dentist I met in the hospital
