Okay so I read up a little on the importance of flossing. Let’s put it this way. I’m a der-der-der for not flossing daily. Flossing removes plaque build-up between the teeth. brushing removes plaque build-up on the surface of the teeth. plaque that builds up over time HARDENS and becomes TARTAR. In fact, I dont really ever floss. I have no problem holding in feelings of self-pity for not having the prettiest pearly whites, yet i have never taken full care of my teeth. I have taken on a new vow for myself, as far as dental care goes. I want to make sure that I have pretty chompers for as long as possible, so I will be flossing, and brushing, and mouth-washing, frequently.
The funny thing is, I just started doing this about a week ago, and I can tell you, ho. ly. cow. My gumline is receding, which is a sign that the gingivitis is on its way out the door. My teeth already look whiter, and cleaner. My breath smells better. And I feel really good about smiling!
So, celebrity smile-secret? Floss. don’t be a der-der-der.
