You've heard it a thousand times from your parents, your dentist, and hell, your grandmother: "Floss your teeth." I have to be honest with you, I am not the greatest flosser. I try, I really do try. But I never seem to be motivated enough to floss twice daily. It just seems a little excessive to me. Or at least it did. After researching the topic and finding out all of the weird things that happen when you don't floss every day... I'm headed to the store to purchase an excess of floss, because as it turns out, flossing every day is not excessive, and it's absolutely something you should be doing.
Whether you're a lackadaisical flosser like me, or someone who thinks their aggressive brushing style should be enough to dislodge whatever's stuck between their teeth, it's time to read up, read on, and get ready to change your routine. Because it turns out, flossing daily is way more serious that you could've ever imagined, and can help you prevent some major health problems from popping up down the line. Just like the rest of your health, beyond the way your teeth look, is how healthy your mouth really is. So break out the floss, and get ready to step up your flossing routine.
