Top 4 good reasons to floss
- Prevent bad breath (halitosis), cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease, which are caused by the bacteria that lurks between your teeth
- Reduce your risk for serious physical health issues such as Alzheimer’s disease, pancreatic cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and pneumonia, which can all be linked to that same bacteria mentioned above.
- Look younger. Taking care of yourself inside and out is the best way to maintain your natural beauty (or handsome-ness) and stay looking young. A good oral hygiene regimen is one of the best defences against the effects of aging.
- Save money. Prevention is the best form of medicine—and budgeting! (Seriously, $3 floss versus a $1200 root canal. I know which one I’m choosing.)
