Spear has released a new clinical course on dental hygiene.

In “Toss the Floss: Exploring Alternatives for Interproximal Hygiene,” Trisha O'Hehir examines why interproximal surfaces are at elevated risk for disease, and effective alternatives to traditional dental floss for cleaning these areas. She also identifies some of the limitations of traditional floss for cleaning between teeth.

After watching this course, viewers will be able to:

  • Explain why interproximal surfaces are at risk for dental disease
  • Understand the lack of science supporting dental floss
  • Describe alternatives to dental floss
