Are You Flossing Your Teeth Too Aggressively?

Flossing removes food residue and plaque from where your toothbrush can’t reach. However, aggressive flossing can cause injuries to gum tissue. Here is how to know you are flossing wrongly.

Key takeaways:

– You floss more than twice daily which can expose your tooth’s roots.
– You pull the floss too hard on your gum line, resulting in gum recession.
– You are forcing floss against your gums and teeth which causes enamel erosion.

Remember that gums also bleed when you don’t floss for long. Consult your dentist on how to floss properly.
