Flossing is an essential aspect of proper dental care that many people often neglect. When people do floss, they may experience bleeding from the gums, which can make them apprehensive about flossing in the future.
While flossing, it is important to remember to not be too rough. You need to thoroughly clean the space between your teeth, but you must do it carefully in order to avoid damage to your gums. Not flossing also increases your likelihood of bleeding. If the issue persists, it may be a sign of gingivitis, the early stage of severe gum disease.
