Flossing plays an important part in oral health, it has been argued.
People of all ages should remember to floss daily in order to improve their oral health, it has been noted.
John E Peterson wrote in a blog for the Emporia Gazette that the mouth contains more than 700 different kinds of bacteria and left unchecked these can multiply – especially in areas where brushing cannot reach – and cause tooth decay.
He noted: “Regular brushing is very useful – and should be done at least three times a day – but it does not get those in the plaques between our teeth. Only flossing does that.”
Individuals of all ages are therefore advised to break out the floss and get cleaning.
Elsewhere, Canadian publication Divine recently reported that by brushing and not flossing, a person is only cleaning two-thirds of the tooth surface.
As a result, the publication claimed, flossing can help to remove plaque and bacterial build-up in the mouth in areas brushing alone cannot reach.
