A lot of people may brush there teeth but not floss, why ?. With flossing it can remove old tracks of food that get stuck between your teeth, under the gum line or if you wear braces it can remove the food passages from there too.

For the type of dental floss to use, it is probably best if you consult your dentist as everyone's teeth are different. They will also show you the best way of how to floss. The last thing you want to do is damage your gums because either you are using the wrong type of floss or flossing the wrong way. Unwaxed dental floss is generally good, as it gets into real small gaps. But in general take care when flossing.

Flossing will take time, especially when you first start, you have to put the floss in between each tooth and gently move it back and forth until you reach the gum line then curl it round each tooth and glide the floss up and down the sides .

In these days we are all rushing about, but you do need to take the extra time to look after your teeth, flossing is not a quick fix and is something you need to do everyday. If you keep a regular routine of brushing, using mouthwashes, flossing and regular check up at the dentist you should be able to maintain a healthy set of white teeth.

A year ago i was suffering from toothaches and bleeding gums, all due to me neglecting my teeth and gums. When i lose a tooth i soon realized that i needed to take more care.

Dentistry work can very expensive and in this economic climate unexpected and unnecessary dentist bills due to teeth neglect are not taken into account by a lot of families.

Take the time daily to brush and floss.
