We have seen in multiple studies and research how stress can affect and directly even cause chronic health conditions, and that health psychology teaches us to look at our health in a unique way than the biomedical approach to disease. Other factors can contribute to a disease state such as diet and genetics. In order to treat the patient in the health continuum—a mind/body approach—it is necessary to look at all these factors as integral parts of the disease state. The mom and her physician can look at a variety of ways to help with her stress, such as dietary changes away from the processed foods and doing some research into ways to eat healthier foods on a budget. They can also look at medications to treat her hypertension, but along with that perhaps counseling is in order as well to help her deal with her stress.

The answer is that it depends on the patient. In healthy adults with good dentition, dietary habits and oral hygiene, and regular follow-up appointments with dentists, flossing may not be of significant benefit. Some patients in this category would floss just to feel fresh and derive potential benefit, and there is nothing wrong with that.On the other hand, if patients had any of the following risk factors, we would place more emphasis on using all the tools in the kit, which include flossing. Among the more significant factors are systemic diseases such as diabetes; smoking; dry mouth; poor dietary habits (including excessive sugar consumption and snacking); poor oral hygiene; multiple fillings; unreliable follow-up visits; or orthodontic appliances such as braces. It is in these patients that the beneficial effects of flossing could be detected in clinical trials more easily.
