If you don't floss for a month, you may have terrible breath. As we eat, little particles of food might become caught in hard-to-reach regions between teeth.
After a time, this may stagnate. Sulfur compounds from decaying food smell bad. Food residue is removed by flossing.
Gingivitis may result from not flossing. "Plaque buildup around your gums will cause them to become irritated. Your gums become red, swollen, and painful.
During brushing, your gums may bleed. "Thankfully gingivitis is reversible and your gums may become healthy again within a few of weeks when you commence flossing."
Gingivitis is the first stage of periodontal disease, or gum disease. It destroys soft tissue and bones surrounding the teeth, causing loose teeth or tooth loss.
Gum disease symptoms include redness, soreness, and bleeding. If you ignore these symptoms and don't clean, this inflammation might damage your teeth's supporting bone.
Not flossing for a month may increase tooth decay. "Sticky or sugary meals might cling to your teeth. These chemicals will be broken down and acidified by tooth plaque bacteria.
This acid may rot your teeth. Your tooth might become cavitated over time, requiring a dental visit. Flossing thoroughly cleans all tooth surfaces and prevents dental decay.
