Too many people forget about the important concept of flossing one’s teeth. Sure, you’ll go to the dentist and you’ll hear your dentist tell you that you should definitely consider flossing more often. Unfortunately, far too few people consider it.
Flossing is extremely vital to the maintenance of a healthy mouth, gums, and teeth. It’s also essential to keeping your breath fresh.
Think about all of the foods you eat and the things that get stuck inside your teeth if you don’t floss them. Brushing your teeth is great for cleaning the surface of your teeth, but how about the deep pockets within the teeth? Clearly, your toothbrush isn’t reaching all of these, and that’s why there’s the need for dental floss to begin with.
Consider a piece of meat that you eat. The meat gets stuck in between your teeth sometimes. Well, did you know that when that meat sits there, the smell of it will absolutely rot? Consider a dead carcass that sits around your house for a few weeks. Wouldn’t that smell bad? Well it would, and meat in your teeth would have the same effect.
Most people don’t realize this, but this is also a central cause of bad breath. If something stays there for too long, it’ll simply smell bad. Get rid of it before it has a chance to sit by flossing on a daily basis and you won’t have to worry about this issue to begin with. Plus, you’ll have a healthy mouth and gums.
