Do you remember your last visit to the dentist’s office? Dentist [1]

Dentist: I noticed a bit of plaque build-up. Have you been flossing twice a day?

(awkward silence)

You: Um… I ran out and I just can’t find any at the drug store! There must be a shortage or something.

It looks like you’re going to have to find another excuse for why your pearly whites aren’t exactly…well, white. USA Trade Online [2], the official source of U.S. merchandise trade data, reveals that imports of dental floss have been on a steady rise the last five years.

With USA Trade Online [2], your dentist can even identify the ports where floss is shipped in abundance!

So no more excuses. No more hiding your teeth in shame. Avoid the pain at the dentist and floss!
