Flossing represents approximately 40 percent of the effort involved in teeth cleaning! Flossing ensures that all five surfaces of each tooth are cleaned. Plaque accumulation between teeth results in inflamed gums, dental decay, cavities, and gum disease.
Due to the body’s interconnected nature, gum health and periodontitis affect other organs. Infections that begin in the mouth can spread to other body parts. When you floss and maintain good dental health, you lower your risk of developing a stroke, diabetes, lung disease, and heart disease.
The early stage of gum disease, known as gingivitis, is marked by oral bleeding and irritation. Healthy gums should not bleed during brushing or flossing. You should clean and floss your teeth more often if your gums are bleeding.
Dental floss is an inexpensive way to maintain healthy gums and teeth. We know that flossing more frequently is an excellent approach to enhancing dental health, and your dentist can determine if you have been flossing consistently.
You take care of your teeth and do everything you can to keep them healthy. Flossing and brushing your teeth together is an excellent way to keep your teeth clean and healthy. However, brushing may not be enough to eliminate all the food particles and bacteria stuck between your teeth, depending on what you eat. When you floss, you can eliminate these food bits and bacteria that your toothbrush cannot reach.
When food gets stuck between your teeth and gums, bacteria can cause a foul smell, which makes your breath smell terrible. By flossing, you get rid of these bacteria that cause bad breath, which keeps your breath fresh all day.
