Dental floss: for or against

Often I hear from patients that they do not floss (dental floss) and https://pillintrip.com/ru/search_analog_ru-xarelto_in_turkey because “it bleeds, it hurts, the floss breaks, etc.” If there are such complaints, the first thing to do is to go to the doctor, because normally this should not be the case.

Why does it happen?

The gum is inflamed, you need to go to the doctor, do a cleaning and eliminate the cause of the inflammation.
You are using the floss incorrectly and simply injure the gum.
There are hidden cavities or old defective fillings that need to be replaced.
Food constantly gets stuck between the teeth, which ultimately leads to the formation of a pocket (the space between the gum and the tooth root) and inflammation of the gums.

How to floss: IMPORTANT rules

The thread must be inserted between the teeth, first pressing it to the surface of one tooth, and then the other. This way you will clean both contact surfaces and do not injure the gingival papilla (the gum between the teeth).
It is better to take a thin thread, and not a tape or a floss, which cannot clean all the contacts, but it is very easy to damage the gum.
Dental floss should be used at least twice a day.
Once you get used to and know how to properly floss your teeth, the entire brushing will take about a minute.
I recommend using Oral-B floss. It doesn’t have a harsh minty smell and is thin enough to get through even the tightest of contacts.
