Use dental floss correctly
Flossing is still too complicated for many, but the benefits are undisputed. Read here how flossing can be applied easily and efficiently.
Dealing with dental floss is almost a mystery. Pretty much everyone knows they should be used and yet, hardly anyone does it. According to surveys, just under 20% of Germans use dental floss every day, and almost half of those polled do not use it at all. The benefit, indeed the necessity of flossing is absolutely undisputed. The main reason nevertheless to renounce, then should be the cumbersome and lengthy application. But that does not have to be that way. With the following tips you can make the exercise quick and easy with a little practice and also ensure that the result is optimal.
Use sufficient dental floss: For each space, a fresh section of floss should be used. During cleaning, deposits and bacteria are released and stick to the floss. If you drive with the used section under the next gum line, you can achieve the opposite and may even bring bacteria into these areas.
At least once a day: It is actually not necessary to unplug the floss every time you brush your teeth, but once a day you should clean the interstices. Best in the evening before going to bed, because you do not have the stress as in the morning and can devote the dental care a little more extensively.
Especially at the beginning it can come with the use of dental floss again and again to slight bleeding gums. But that is no reason to stop, on the contrary. Bleeding indicates inflammation of the gums and it helps to remove the floss. It should get better after a few days. If this is not the case or if there is more bleeding, a dentist should be contacted. Incidentally, if the plastering technique is right, the choice of dental floss is irrelevant. Here you can try different variations and use the ones you can handle best. Although an oral irrigator can not replace the floss, it does make sense to supplement the interstices with cleaning.
