What Your Dental Floss Can Be Telling You.
Flossing teeth is a daily habit one should have to maintain oral health care. Here is another dental tip advice you can add to your flossing routine. After flossing, smell your dental floss. That’s right, smell your floss to see how it smells. The smell of dental floss can tell you more about your teeth and gums’ health. If the floss has a gross or rotten smell, this indicates an overgrowth of bacteria between your teeth, which signals decay and means you need to do better flossing. A typical, non-offensive scent means you’re doing a good job.
