Guitar Floss

String your Guitar… with Floss?

Floss… we all get some after our visit to see Drs. Versman, Heller, and Beckman, but how many people use it for flossing teeth? Daily flossing is the best way to clean between the teeth and under the gum line. Flossing not only helps clean these spaces, it disrupts plaque colonies from building up, preventing damage to the gums, teeth, and bone.

Periodontal Associates hopes you continue this good habit of flossing; however, it can be fun to think of other ways to utilize this great tool.  Ewan Dobson is a guitarist who plays with a guitar only strung with floss.  In this video on Youtube, he gives a visual of how he uses the floss, and then he continues to play a fantastic piece.

If you are a guitarist, let us know what you think about this make-shift string. Also, if you are in need of a back-up container of floss, just stop by Periodontal Associates for your next hygiene appointment and we will always send you home with a goodie bag!
