What Really Happens to Your Teeth When You Don’t Floss

Your dentist probably tells you at your teeth cleanings that you should floss at least once per day, but what really happens if you don’t make it part of your oral hygiene routine? As this video explains, flossing is essential not just for your oral health but for your overall health as well.

If you don’t floss, your gums are likely to become inflamed in response to the buildup of bacteria, which will trigger an immune system response. The inflammation can also cause a range of complications, including heart disease and low birth weight in babies.
