The ileffects that come from chewing tobacco and ilregular flossing.

For those who do not floss or know the meaning of flossing. I have something very important to your health and your future. For those of you who already know the importance of flossing your teeth perhaps maybe I could give you some additional pointers.
"If you were stuck on a desert island and a boat could bring only one thing, you’d want it to bring floss,” says Samuel B. Low, DDS, professor of periodontology at the University of Florida College of Dentistry in Gainesville, and president of the American Academy of Periodontology. “But I’m convinced that the only time some of my patients floss is an hour before showing up in my office.”
Dentists say they hear all sorts of excuses for not flossing. Yet they insist that simple workarounds exist for just about all:
Excuse #1: Food doesn’t get caught between my teeth, so I don’t need to floss.
Flossing isn’t so much about removing food debris as it is about removing dental plaque, the complex bacterial ecosystem that forms on tooth surfaces between cleanings. Plaque is what causes tooth decay, inflamed gums (gingivitis), periodontal disease, and eventually tooth loss. Flossing or using an interdental cleaner is the only effective way to remove plaque between teeth.
Excuse #2: I don’t know how to floss.
Flossing isn’t easy.  Low calls it “the most difficult personal grooming activity there is.” But practice makes perfect.
Here’s how the American Dental Association describes the process:
  • Start with about 18 inches of floss. Wrap most of it around the middle finger of one hand, the rest around the other middle finger.
  • Grasp the floss tightly between your thumbs and forefingers, and use a gentle shoeshine motion to guide it between teeth.
  • When the floss reaches the gum line, form a C shape to follow the contours of the tooth.
  • Hold the floss firmly against the tooth, and move the floss gently up and down.
  • Repeat with the other tooth, and then repeat the entire process with the rest of your teeth, “unspooling” fresh sections of floss as you go along.
Don’t forget to floss the backs of your last molars. “By far, most gum disease and most decay occurs in the back teeth,” Low says.
Excuse #3: I’m not coordinated enough to floss.
Many tooth-cleaning options exist for people whose manual dexterity is compromised by poor coordination, hand pain, paralysis, and amputations -- or simply by fingers that are too big to fit inside the mouth.
One option is to use floss holders. These disposable plastic Y-shaped devices (some equipped with a spool of floss) hold a span of floss between two prongs to allow one-handed use

 Are you flossing correctly? Running the floss along the inside edges of all the teeth you plan.
Only floss the teeth that you plan to keep. The most important thing I can say is Only floss the teeth that you plan to keep.

1. Art of flossing

3. Not flossing causes major health problems at some point in your life. Rule of thumb: Only floss the teeth you want to keep. send this to everyone you love. This information is documented and verifiable. Heart problems on down the line including anyone who smokes, drinks alcohol, eats food. Kissing someone with poor oral hygiene can cause a myriad of problems starting with cancer on down. Smokers mouth is not only filled with a bad taste, but also toxic chemicals. Things to never try. Absolutely Do not smoke or especially if you chew. Chewing tobacco is very carcinogenic to your gums, mouth and tongue and should be avoided at all cost.  Damage to the mouth, teeth and gums are some chewing tobacco effects. Even before cancer is considered, regularly using tobacco can have some nasty effects on oral health. A few risks involved include wearing down teeth, receding of the gums, and tooth loss. Tobacco may accelerate various forms of gum disease, which can make tooth loss more likely. every on knows that cigs are bad for you. The reason that they are so bad is that they are cancer forming. in doing this blog I am seeing the tremendous that any kind of activity pertaining to smocking chewing tobacco, should be definitely be out of the question if you want to have a long life.
Because anything else drinking alcohol may be fine depending appon how your body uses the sugars etc. People who suffer from alcohalism. I am not a doctor no do I propose to be. I am merely speaking of the possible ill effects from the consumption of excessive alcohol combined with poor oral health. Flossing cleans the inside of the teeth eliminating the multiple bacteria causing fowl breath and after effects of any sugar intake. Oral hygiene

When do you floss? Is it daily, when you feel like it, once a week or daily?
making sure to be through.
what does it mean if you see blood on your floss.
If you find blood in mouth or on floss you can know you are in serious need of help.
Make sure you floss every day taking the time to care for every tooth.
