Why You Shouldn’t Worry If You Haven’t Been Flossing
Lest you are a dentist you may not have the palpable data that there is no clear confirmation to back up the fact that flossing has any effect to strengthen your teeth and gums. If you don’t like flossing and think that it’s hard to do or maybe you don't floss at all in general. This will probably give you some sort of relief. Floss is good for taking out food stuck between your teeth, no doubt but is floss really good for your oral health? – Well, science says there is no solid proof. No this doesn't mean you can quit flossing, but you could discard your floss and swap to fluffy interdental brushes which are simpler to use, gentler to your gums and darn better at diminishing gum disease than floss.

Be that as it may, even if you loathe flossing, it is an important part of oral cleanliness. Your toothbrush can not reach each and every corner of your teeth. Brushing your teeth and not flossing is the same as showering and not washing your armpits. Ugh.

Flossing when combined with brushing causes you clean every surface of your teeth. About 40% of your tooth surfaces are out of your toothbrush’s reach. Flossing once per day regularly, ideally after dinner or before going to bed will keep your mouth in great condition.
The Advantages of Flossing
Flossing helps in getting rid of following health conditions:
• Cavities
• Tartar build up
• Gum disease           
• Diseases linked to poor oral health
However if done poorly it could give the idea that flossing has next to zero benefits – in any case just because science says this, doesn't make it bona fide. The research did not go on long enough to prove it completely. In any case, you need to clean between your teeth – so it either be floss or interdental brushes, the decision is yours.
