#Thread on #flossing and #mouthwash:

A few days ago, I posted a thread about the importance and proper technique of brushing your teeth. Here it is:

It was very well received and I thank all of you for that.

Here is part II:
Before we discuss how to use floss and mouthwash, let's understand why.

Food left behind on teeth=> Bacteria=> Acid production=> Destruction of tooth structure=> Cavities=> More food stuck there.

This cycles continues continuously unless it's broken.
Brushing properly helps removed food from the outside, inside and top of the teeth. Unfortunately, the most common area of food getting stuck is in BETWEEN teeth, where they touch each other. And the ONLY way to remove that is by proper and regular flossing.
