Don't like to floss? Join the club. But there's one downside to membership: you may be denying yourself the opportunity to live an additional 6.4 years.
Researcher from the renowed Cleveland Clinic have added to the growing realization that bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream. This can contribute to inflammation and clogging of the arteries. Flossing breaks up the bacterial plaque between the teeth and thus can increase your life expectancy.
So, even if you do not like flossing, do it once a day to remove food and plaque from your teeth and gums. The fact that it may keep you alive and healthy for an extra six yeas is more than enough to smile about.
