What are the benefits of flossing?
How many times have your doctor asked you if you floss regularly, even though your answer was “yes”? But doctors know that you just floss no more than five times before your appointment, more than half of people don’t floss very often, 20% don’t clean teeth at all, and with the development of technology, the birth of water floss has made people more aware of the importance of oral care
Most people think of flossing as an annoying thing. We are tired from working day to night, and that extra times seem sneed to take forever! It seems like every meal requires a tooth cleaning, but the trick is that it doesn’t matter what time of day you floss. The key to success is to floss day in and day out. Even if you don’t use it on a given day, it doesn’t affect your dental health
The human body’s immune response naturally responds to external irritants by sending fluid to the area to help it heal. Imagine letting a thin strip enter your finger. We experience swelling and pain. Whenever a foreign object is pulled out, the finger will protect itself by bleeding. Our mouths are also similar to our fingers
We may experience swollen, sore, or bleeding gums, especially after flossing. This is how our body’s physiological response works. Just like the slivers on your fingers, your body is trying to flush out food, plaque and bacteria from your gums through this disorder and bleeding. When we use dental floss to stimulate the gums, it triggers a reaction. We’ve interviewed a lot of groups of people, young people, kids, older people, who say they don’t floss because it makes their gums bleed. At first, you may bleed more, but the more you floss, the less bleeding you will actually bleed.
Flossing has many benefits and once you incorporate it into your daily routine, the time it takes to floss with water will decrease and, combined with the time you spend brushing, your mouth and gums will also be healthier and no longer bleeding.
5 Reasons why water flosser is Important
1.Using regular floss can remove sticky bacteria, or plaque, from your teeth, accomplishing 40 percent of the job. Using water flosser can remove at least 60% of bacteria, and each tooth has five protective layers, two of which we immediately lose when we don’t floss. Plaque buildup can lead to swollen gums, cavities, tooth decay, or gum disease.
2. The rest of the body is healthier when you floss with water. When you have good oral health, you reduce your risk of stroke, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, respiratory disease, and heart disease – all of which are linked to gum health and periodontitis. Flossing reduces and removes plaque between your teeth and promotes overall oral health.
3. Prevent gingivitis. Gingivitis is an early stage of gum disease where the gums swell and bleed easily. Healthy gums don’t bleed when you brush or floss. If your gums bleed, it’s a sign that you need to brush more frequently and floss with water at the same time.
4.Water flosser is a low cost and easy way to prevent tooth decay and promote oral health compared to the expensive equipment of dental hospitals for a comprehensive examination, time-consuming and laborious, while some people question how effective flossing is, we know that it is not ineffective and helps to keep the gum tissue healthy. Alternatively, you can consult your dentist who can immediately tell if you floss regularly during your cleaning routine.
5.Your smile will look better. Flossing can lead to smoother breath, whiter teeth and a more confident smile. Just a few minutes can improve your overall health and make you feel confident that your teeth are your second impression, and the health of your teeth can affect whether people want to interact with you and communicate with you.
How to use water flosser properly
1.Water source – this may mean connecting it to a tap or filling the tank with cold warm water.
Placement – Place the nozzle into the mouth, starting with the molars, so that the doucher is away from the teeth and gums, rather than directly against them. You may need to lean against the sink now so that you don’t splash wet clothes on the counter when you open the sink.
2.Select the pressure setting and turn it on – there will be an on button or a turntable to adjust the water pressure. Start with the lowest pressure setting and work your way up. Make sure the pressure is high but comfortable. You can keep your lips closed to prevent splashing, but be sure to let the water drain into the sink. With the SIILLK dental cleaner, there is continuous pressure regulation technology, so that you feel a continuous and stable water pressure, and will not decrease with the reduction of power.
3.Along the gum line – Guide the water, tooth by tooth, to the area between the gum line and the tooth. Aim for the top of the teeth, the base of the gum, and the space between each tooth. Hold the water on each tooth for about two seconds and repeat the process on the inside and outside of the tooth until the entire mouth has been treated. It will take you about two minutes to complete.
4.Empty the tank – When done, turn off the equipment, remove the nozzle and drain the remaining water.
5.Clean your equipment – remember to rinse the reservoir of the floss floss after each use to ensure its hygiene. Know how to clean water floss,The external countersignature can be stored after drying the tank with a hair dryer.
6.Brushing your teeth at least twice a day or using a SIILLK after meals can clean up to 70% of the bacteria inside your mouth,floss at least once a day and supplement with SIILLK water floss to further remove residual plaque bacteria and food debris.
