We all strive to keep our oral hygiene a fairly high level and go out on a whim into the city of Leeds some days and buy all the latest stuff to keep our teeth clean and our gums healthy- which is admirable and beneficial in the long term. Within that doggy bag, you should have bought some dental floss as well, because this has become a necessary element in your everyday regime. It comes in varying thickness’s and finding the one for you will be a little trial and error until you get the one that slips between your teeth just so. The point of flossing is to get into and between the places which your normal brush can’t and where food can get lodged, and it can take some time to master at first if you want to get it right as you are trying to wipe away the food and plaque from the tiniest of areas between the teeth and around the gums. If you have problems with this, you can pick up some tips from your dentist or hygienist about technique, though one of the best ways to floss is in front of a mirror at first, so you can see what you are doing. Flosses also come in different flavours, and can be waxed and if you have rather delicate gums, soaking the floss in a herbal oil first can be very healthy indeed. For the lazy among you, you can also pick up floss that is is already strung between two arms and has a handle which saves you from wrapping it around your fingers.
