What happens if you don't floss regularly?

Peria-dental disease and it is horrible!

You never remove plaque from the spaces between your teeth. Your breath won't be all the fresh that it could be.


Beeb
gingivitis, your gums bleed alot, and your gums become very sensitive when your eating n stuff

Not only will you get plaque build up, but you will also get some sort of solid build up that looks like splinters when you have a thorough teeth cleaning. I brush my teeth twice a day but hardly ever floss and I thought I was going to faint when my dental hygeinist told me about this.


emilyyyyyyyxD
I didn't really start flossing regularly until I got my braces off which is about 13 years old? If you're lucky you probably won't get cavities, but dentists will probably kill me for saying that since all dentists STRESS flossing. If you have braces definitely do it. Worst case scenario: cavities


Lena
Nothing, I don't do it and my dentist says that I have perfect teeth!


rebecca
you get teeth/gum problems...

I think that the only thing that will happen to you is you will get plack.I think all you have todo to get rid of it is to brush really well (and get ack to flossing)

hohnancy gave a good description of what would happen. Your teeth and gums are just like the rest of your body and need to be kept free from infection. If you do not floss, plaque will build up in between your teeth and under your gums. Plaque is loaded with bacteria and cannot be removed simply by rinsing. Plaque left on your teeth for 48 hours eventually hardens and forms calculus. Once plaque turns into calculus (tartar), it cannot be removed by brushing or flossing, it must be removed by your hygienist or dentist. Calculus is rough and bacteria adhere to it very easily. The bacteria irritate the gums causing gingivitis. If gingivitis is not treated, it leads to periodontitis, which is when the bacteria have migrated into the gums and begin to deteriorate the supporting bone that holds in your teeth. Once you start losing this bone, your teeth will become loose and eventually fall out.

How do you know if you have gingivitis? Your gums are red, swollen, and/or they bleed. If your gums bleed when you floss or brush, you have gingivitis, and are one step closer to losing your teeth. Healthy gums do not bleed. If any other part of your body bled with very little stimulation, such as brushing, you would be concerned. As you should be if your gums are bleeding.

Flossing may seem like a hassle now, but it is worth it in the end. Buying floss for the rest of your life is a whole lot cheaper than extractions, fillings, or periodontal surgery.

More plaque will build up on your teeth, especially between your teeth. Plaque can lead to cavities and gingivitis.

you get nasty stuff caked in between your teeth, and if it goes uncheck for a while, will cause gum disease.


Annika
ur teeth get all nasty

What happens if you don't floss? If you do not floss and allow plaque to remain in between teeth it eventually hardens into a substance known as tartar. Unlike plaque which can be easily removed by brushing, tartar can only be removed by your dentist.

Over time, levels of more dangerous types of bacteria build up within tartar. Mean and vengeful, these bacteria produce toxins which irritate and inflame the gums. This condition is known as gingivitis. If gingivitis is left untreated it can progress to periodontal disease - a condition where bacteria and their toxins invade not only the gums but also the bones and the structures supporting the teeth. This can lead to bone loss, loose teeth, and teeth which fall out.

We recommend Glide or any other coated dental floss because they slide easily between teeth. However, any floss that you can get between your teeth and which does not fray or break easily is good.

Alternatively, if you don't like using dental floss, consider an interdental cleaner (electric flosser) which makes flossing easy and convenient.

If you haven't flossed in a while, you may see a little red tinge of blood on the floss after you use it. This indicates that your gums are slightly inflamed and vastly in need of flossing to remove bacteria. With a regular regimen of flossing this red tinge should go away.

Cavities between the teeth or under the fillings, where they are almost impossible to fix, resulting in painful extractions, or painful AND expensive root canals/ bridgework.

Potentially you could lose your teeth, develop a bad bacterial infection and die! Of course, that's worst case scenario.

Best bet is simply to practice good hygiene. You'll smell and look better.

Food and plaque will breed bacteria and lead to gingivitis and gum disease and cavities.
