Brushing and flossing properly, along with regular dental checkups, can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. But did you know that a dental floss is quite important to protect your smile?
A Dental Floss is a thread mostly made of plastic ribbon or nylon filaments whose main purpose is to remove any food or plaque that gets lodged in between teeth. The main caretaker of teeth is considered the toothbrush. However, toothbrushes are quite limited because they cannot reach the area in the gaps between the teeth, which, unfortunately, are common areas where food can easily get stuck and where bacteria can easily grow. This could lead to cavities, tooth decay, and to expensive dental treatments.
Flossing is widely recommended by dentists worldwide, although it is not being used as dentists hope. In America, it is known that around only 50% of people actually floss to complete their oral hygiene care. Thus, dentists continually advertise the use of floss to their patients due to its many dental benefits and some benefits to overall health.

Hi,

You are absolutely right and I agree with you that flossing is more important. Floss is one type of interdental cleaner. It is designed specially to clean the space between the teeth & gap between the base of the gums and the teeth. These are places where a toothbrush can not reach.

Dental plaque is made up of harmful micro-organisms which include bacteria, viruses and protozoa (microscopic parasites). If there is plaque left between teeth and near gums, it can accumulate and cause inflammation.

Indeed, I am flossing my teeth everyday to prevent tooth decay. Before I am not using it but after I visited my Dentist in Orlando he recommended me to use dental floss for additional oral hygiene regimen. I liked your post a lot of people who don't know how to use or what is the importance of dental floss will learn.

Thumbs up :-smiley7

Well, dental floss helps to prevent gum disease by getting rid of pieces of food and plaque from between your teeth.
