Flossing one’s teeth is incredibly important, not just for oral health but a person’s health, overall. Flossing properly is imperitive for good gum health and when one’s gums are not in shape, the rest of the body can suffer. This can cause such problems as diabetes, respiratory disease and premature births, among others. Remember to use new floss, be gentle and get between every tooth for optimum results!
- Forget to floss? You may be putting yourself at risk for some serious health conditions.
- The human mouth is teeming with bacteria — bacteria that should be kept under control by a bit of toothpaste and mouthwash, right?
- Not quite, because flossing doesn’t just take care of your teeth, it maintains the health of your gums as well.
“Why take the risk? Make a daily habit out of flossing. All it takes is a few minutes of your time to keep your whole body healthy.”
