Did you know that flossing will help your sex life? Yes, in Dr. Dan Sindelar’s book Refresh Life: Oral health is the missing piece, adding years to your life, and improving your overall well-being!, he states, “Flossing is the new Viagra!” By flossing, you are helping out your circulation system. Your circulation system can improve your sex life.

Dr. Lodding is proud to work closely with medical doctors and dentists through the American Association of Oral Systemic Health, which seeks to educate the connection between health of the mouth and the body. Flossing your teeth also improves your general health, thus promoting a longer and healthier life and smile. In Dr. Sindelar’s book, he states that people with gum disease have a 93% chance of getting diabetes, and gum disease also increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other critical health concerns.

That’s why cosmetic dentist in Elgin, Dr. Lodding, highly encourages you to floss. Flossing your teeth will get rid of the plaque between your teeth and decrease your chances of gum disease. Of course, flossing can be a tedious chore. Well Dr. Lodding is encouraging the Elgin community to floss by running a promotion on Facebook. By taking a unique, creative photo of you and your family flossing, you can win a $200 gift certificate to Ruth Chris! The contest runs through November, so plan your photo today.
