Could flossing actually be bad for your health?
Dentists have always told us to floss but new research has shown that it could be a waste of time - and even possibly bad for your gum health.
Current guidelines say we need to take that extra step in our oral hygiene routine to prevent cavities and plaque build-up but such recommendations have now been removed from official health guidelines in the US.
