Ancient Purity Standards for Dental Floss

Why it is Essential to Floss

Consider Flossing Daily... Regular flossing plays a significant part in your dental hygiene. Skip flossing can lead to plaque building up along your gum line and between your teeth. Over time, your risk of experiencing gum issues and tooth decay might increase. The American Dental Association (ADA) reported that interdental cleaners such as dental floss play a main role in removing debris and plaque from spots which a toothbrush cannot reach. Removing some leftover cabbage or digging out a lingering piece of popcorn from between your teeth feels very satisfying. In addition helping your gums and teeth look nice and feel good, flossing has numerous other oral benefits as well. Let us have a closer and more detailed look at these benefits.

Reduces Bad Breath… For millions of people around the world bad breath (halitosis) is a serious problem. Take some time to floss is one of the ways you can use keeping stinky breath away. When pieces of food get trapped between your teeth, they slowly begin to decay. If you don not remove these food particles, they can cause you having foul-smelling breath. Also, if plaque builds up between or around your teeth and starts to gradually wear away your tooth enamel. This process can cause gum illness and cavities, which largely contribute to bad breath. Might support Heart Health…You probably think: ''How can flossing be good for my heart? '' Well, according to comprehensive research in 2019, participants who adhered to a high standard of oral hygiene experienced a decreased risk of heart failure and atrial fibrillation! The American Heart Association stated that a link between oral health and heart health may have more to do with a link between the health of your mouth and the overall health of your body. So decent dental hygiene doesn’t solely benefit your gums and teeth but it might benefit heart health, too!

Flossing Daily can make a Big Difference in Oral Health

Flossing... Need more convincing?

Decreases the risk of Cavities…Tooth decay can lead to cavities, which cause a small hole or opening in your teeth’s hard surface known as enamel. Although this process takes a while, the more plaque you have on the enamel of your teeth, the higher your risk of developing a cavity. A good flossing session between your teeth at least once daily can aid getting rid of hidden particles of food and plaque build-up, and reduce the risk of tooth decay.

Helps Preventing Gum Issues… The beginning stage of gum disease is known as Gingivitis. One of gingivitis’ first symptoms is inflammatory conditions around your gums. When brushing or flossing your gums might bleed as well. If you don’t treat gingivitis, it can lead to a more severe infection known as Periodontitis. If not taken care of, periodontitis can lead to an inflammatory response throughout the body. Flossing once daily can assist reducing your risk of gum conditions. Most dentists recommend to floss at least once daily. Some people like to floss in the morning, while others prefer one final cleaning before bedtime. In general it is advised that you floss before brushing your teeth using high-quality natural toothpaste.

Dental Floss a Brief History 

We've explained the benefits of this practice, you should consider adding this to your healthy lifestyle. But have you ever wondered when we began flossing? The answer might be surprising. Flossing is an older concept than you most-likely think.  While we not really know the exact start of flossing, it seems like as long as food particles has been getting stuck between our teeth, humans have used some kind of interdental cleaning tool. Several studies suggest cleaning between teeth was performed as early as the Prehistoric period! So Dental Flossing is once again Ancient Purity in action.

Flossing teeth as we know it today has developed around 2 centuries years ago. An American dentist, Levi Spear Parmly, introduced the idea of using waxen silk thread as floss in 1815. In his book named “A Practical Guide to the Management of Teeth,” he wrote that the silk-made thread should be used “through the interstices of the teeth in order to dislodge that annoying matter that no brush could get to which is the real source of disease.”  Flossing didn’t get popular right away. Toothpicks were more interesting for Victorians instead of going with their hands in their mouth pulling thread through their teeth. English writer and social critic, Charles Dickens, along with numerous other rich people of that time owned retractable toothpicks ornamented with ivory and engraved with their initials. Fancy! It was not until the mid-20th century that dental flossing gained increasing popularity. 

An Ancient practice for the modern Smile

Organic Dental Floss…Closing Thoughts

Most of us know that we should be flossing but regard it as a bit of an optional extra in our dental care routine. Surely diligently brushing our teeth twice a day does the job? Wrong!  Interdental plaque removal, known as flossing, may actually be the most important part of your oral hygiene routine. “There are great benefits to using dental floss,” says Dr Digges, “and I believe it is an essential part of everyone’s oral hygiene routine.” Most importantly, dental floss can reach the places between your teeth that your toothbrush cannot, and which are therefore often neglected. 

Flossing easily removes food particles and the build-up of plaque from between your teeth, helping maintain healthy teeth and gums and avoiding gum disease and tooth decay. Flossing also stimulates the gums, improving circulation which can promote healing. It also helps keep your breath fresher by removing the old food caught between your teeth. An essential part of any good oral hygiene routine, flossing is simple, effective and very important way to help protect your teeth and gums. Floss like a Boss!
