Symptoms You May Experience if You Do Not Floss Well Enough

Posted on 5/10/2021 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Symptoms You May Experience if You Do Not Floss Well EnoughIt pays to know how to floss your teeth effectively. Otherwise, you can experience dental and health conditions that can lead to problems with gum health, tooth decay, and your overall well-being.

Periodontal Disease

One of the main problems that can surface when you do not floss well is gingivitis or periodontal disease. If your gums bleed when you brush, you are not doing a good enough job removing the plaque and food at the gum line and between the teeth. You should take at least 2 minutes, once a day, to floss your teeth to ensure your gums remain tight and disease-free.

Gum Recession

Besides gum infections and bleeding, poor flossing can lead to gum recession. If you do not do a good enough job of removing the food and plaque between the teeth, the gums can loosen and pull away from the teeth. This can lead to tooth mobility and problems with sensitivity. Therefore, you need to make sure you know what you are doing when flossing your teeth.

Tooth Decay and Abscesses

The whole idea of flossing is to get rid of the food, bacteria, and plaque in those places that are hard to reach. If you do not floss regularly, you will increase your risk of tooth decay and abscesses. If you get an abscess, you will have to undergo root canal surgery. Abscesses often develop when dental decay deepens, affecting the layers below the tooth's enamel.

Do you know how to floss correctly? If you have questions, we can show you the proper way to floss during your dental exam. Make sure you are flossing and brushing your teeth, and do not be afraid to ask questions. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment for a dental exam and x-rays. We can schedule you any time during the week that works for you.
