Add "floss" to your daily routine
If you feel guilty for responding timidly "not always" when your dentist asks you about flossing, you're not the only one. Statistics say that about 80% of people do not floss.
Although you have heard about the importance of flossing, you probably do not pay attention when the dentist starts talking about it. For some reason it's a hard habit to incorporate, probably because it takes time, makes a mess, or because it's something else you have to do.
Well, it turns out that this part of your daily routine is worth every second. Since your toothbrush can not reach every corner of your mouth (such as between your teeth), flossing is the best way to remove any particle of food and plaque to prevent tooth decay and gingivitis (inflammation of the gum tissue ). As a bonus, it helps prevent bad breath as it can prevent bacteria from forming in these hard-to-reach places.
Flossing is important to keep the gums healthy and prevent periodontal disease. Your oral health is linked to your physical health and not brushing or flossing your teeth can actually make you susceptible to infections.
In addition to recognizing that flossing is a good habit, you can add this to your routine daily if you have problem with traditional dental floss. There are several options that can be used to clean between the teeth. The first are the floss pick and the wire clamp. These useful gadgets are easy to use, quick and cool. For people with a space between their teeth, use an interdental brush. At the end of each day, you will see how, just after passing the thread, your mouth is refreshing and with the feeling that you have just left the dentist.
As we know, saliva helps keep the mouth moist. When we eat, the salivary flow increases, allowing us to chew and swallow the food. Saliva also has protective effect. It neutralizes acids, when we eat carbohydrates that reduce the pH of the mouth, and removes food residues that remain after meals. Most Americans chew sugar-free chewing gum as a "natural habit" to purify the breath, cleanse mouth after meals, strengthen your teeth and have a feeling of well being at the end of a long day.
