3 Things That Will Make You Want To Floss!

Let’s face it, flossing is easy to forget and it may seem trivial. However, flossing is just as important if not more important than brushing your teeth! Read the following information- it will make you want to floss.

  • Brushing only cleans about 2/3 of your teeth

Imagine if you only ever cleaned 2/3 of your body. Perhaps you always neglected your hair or your feet simply because you felt you did not have enough time or it was a bother. What would happen? Bacteria would accumulate causing further problems. Such is the case in your mouth when we do not floss. You are leaving 1/3 of your teeth open to the negative effects of bacteria. Eventually this will result in cavities, periodontal disease, or worse!

  • You Only Need to Floss the Teeth You Want to Keep

This may seem irrational but it is quite true! Your teeth are held in place by your gums. If you fail to floss, bacteria will grow beneath your gums, causing the gums to swell and loosen around teeth. Thus your teeth become increasingly mobile until they can fall right out. Flossing is one of the best preventatives to tooth loss. Does this make you want to floss?

  • Daily Flossing Discourages Bad Breath

As stated in the preceding paragraph, bacteria lodges itself beneath your gums. Guess what a build-up of bacteria causes? Bad breath! Clean away nasty bacteria by flossing regularly. Unlike a toothbrush, only flossing can clean in between teeth and beneath the gums.


Undeniably, flossing will make a huge improvement in your oral health. We hope this information will make you want to floss!
