NO FLOSS? YOU MAY BE AT LOSS!

July 10, 2019

Well, all the dentists claim floss is as much important as is brushing, but how many of you do really bother to floss or even consider flossing? Rather, patients try to fib when the dentist asks about their oral habits. Most of us believe brushing is enough of hygiene we maintain to keep our teeth healthy. But eventually no, the brush cannot pick out the stuck in between the teeth food particles. These food remains if not pulled out convert into cavity-causing bacteria and lead to many other oral problems like:

-Gum problems

-Tooth decay

-Bad breath

Brushing does clean the surface removing all the bacteria from the front and behind the teeth. But plaque the bacteria built between the tiny spaces can be extremely harmful. Floss is the only thing and string that can really get into that space between the teeth to remove plaque and bacteria. Use a minimum of 15” long piece of floss and wrap it around each tooth in a ‘C’ shape, moving it in up and down motion. Floss can get you free of the commonest of oral problems giving you a healthier & better lifestyle. Also, it can save you a lot of money you would require to spend some years down the line on your dental treatments if you don’t floss. Regular flossing habits incorporated along with brushing and twice a year of a dental checkup definitely is the basic most and affordable dental care for every individual.

At The Dental Roots, our patients are well convinced with the flossing habits and claimed to feel better at the dental front. Healthy gums are the first step to beautiful teeth and thorough cleaning is the prime and only requirement for great gums.
