Why Floss?

I heard a dentist once say if they had to choose between brushing and flossing, they would choosing flossing any day of the week. When I was a child, I NEVER FLOSSED. As I grew older, I surely paid the price. I had cavities upon cavities. On each visit to the dentist, he would ask when I flossed last. I simply smiled and said a few days ago. Looking back I wish I told the truth so my dentist could be advise my on the importance of flossing!

Flossing is critical to keep your teeth and your mouth healthy. If you feel dental flossing is over-rated, think again. Small pieces of food and and sugars can wedge between your teeth and rot! If you brush twice a day but do not floss and continue to have cavities, look to see where the cavities are forming. If they form between your teeth, bingo!

If you have never flossed, start today! It is very simply, painless and something you can do yourself. Go to just about any local store and purchase some dental floss (it's fairly cheap). It's important to wrap enough floss around your two index fingers to cover your entire mouth. Do not skimp!:) Start with your back bottom left molars and work your way around to the to the bottom right. Once finished, repeat on the top. Gently wedge the floss between the teeth and slide back and forth. This will clean the stuff between the teeth.

I recommend using a disposable head flosser. This is the easiest and quickest method to floss your teeth! If you are pressed for time and want to save your fingers, give this some serious consideration. If you are wondering what a disposable dental head flosser is, I have created a link to amazon for the one of the best on the market (and it is only $7.24).

Flossing IS Important!

Never underestimate the power of flossing! Flossing helps to remove bacteria and hides between the teeth. If the bacteria is left untouched, it can begin to grow and do do many bad things. Plaque will turn to Tarter which can lead to gingivitis which can lead to periodontal disease. In short, if you want to keep your teeth and your health, please floss! Take action today!

It is one of the most simplest forms of prevention. I hear from people daily who tell me they brush all the time and teeth are falling apart. They are clueless as to how this could possible happen. When I asking about flossing, they slowly reflect and the lights go on ... they typically do not floss. Send me an email if you have any questions. In the meantime, grab some floss and get busy.
