People often leave flossing out of their daily oral hygiene routine. However, this is a vital activity if you are to maintain your gums and teeth in a healthy state. On its own, brushing is not sufficient for removing bacteria and food debris from the mouth and from between the teeth. The fact is that floss can reach into those awkward areas between the teeth and at the rear of the mouth. However, if you do floss but don't use the right technique, this can be problematic too.
The Most Common Mistakes with Flossing
It is best not to wait for dental problems to start. It is important to floss every day and to do it properly. This is the foundation of good dental health. The key is to floss correctly and gently every day. And don't leave any teeth out if you want to keep all of them! Consult a dentist, like Dr. Sudharani V Chary, as you get started.Share

Hi, my name is Kevin Nelson and I want to tell you about my experience. I had a painful tooth so I went to see my dentist. After the examination, he said that I needed to have a root canal to save the tooth. I told the dentist to just pull the tooth instead and then he explained why that wasn't a good idea. He said that pulling the tooth would cause additional problems and then he told me what could happen. I didn't want any more problems, so the dentist did the root canal and I'm glad that he did. I wanted to write a blog to tell others about the benefits of a root canal and what to expect during the procedure. I hope that by getting the word out, other people won't make the same mistake that I almost did by getting a perfectly good tooth pulled.
