    Default guys, please floss your teeth regularly!



    ive been having this prob of slightly receding gumlines. and for the past few months, the gum around my canine tooth was red and could bleed sometimes. i was very worried. i saw my dentist, he told me to brush and floss, but i conveniently disregarded the floss part. i used listerine, changed toothpaste, everything, but still it was red and sore.

    then the other day, my mom just bought a new pack of dental floss. i decided to start flossing. guess what, within 2 days, my red and sore gums turned a healthy pink. now i can see that the wounds that usually bled are healing nicely already.

    so two lessons that i hope u all can pick up from me

    1) brush your teeth and gums. floss them everyday using fluoride dental floss
    2) listen to your dentist

    Same condition a coupe of years back until the dentist scolded me

    "Gums don't grow back!" he said. Although my gums dun bleed now, I still feel they are receding leh. Ice-cream cannot bite, must lick!

    Can't imagine how you'd look like in a few years if your mum never bought the floss :P

    why fluoride dental floss? mint floss, can? but a warning, it is a highly addictive habit.
