Flossing is an important part of oral hygiene that often gets overlooked. It may seem like a chore, but it can have long-term benefits when done correctly. This podcast will explore why flossing is important and the different methods available for doing it.

Studies have shown that regular flossing can help reduce inflammation in our gums and promote overall oral health by removing plaque and food debris from between teeth that brushing alone cannot reach. 

This is especially important considering the link between poor oral hygiene and chronic diseases such as heart disease, Alzheimer's, erectile dysfunction, and arthritis.

When it comes to flossing, three main methods are available: string floss, water flossers, and air floss. 

String floss is the most common and traditional option, but it can be tedious and time-consuming. Water flossers offer a more effective clean by using a pulsating jet of water to reach deeper between teeth. Air Floss is the least effective as it uses a pulse of air instead of water, but it is still better than doing nothing.

What are the impacts of bacteria, infections, and cognitive health?

The impacts of bacteria, infections, and cognitive health have been well-documented over the years. 

Studies have shown that poor oral hygiene can increase the risk of various diseases such as heart disease, strokes, and even dementia. 

Bacteria in the mouth can enter the bloodstream and cause inflammation, which is linked to a variety of chronic illnesses.

In addition to these physical health risks, bacteria in the mouth can also affect cognitive health. Poor oral hygiene leads to an increase in bacterial load, which can result in changes in brain chemistry affecting memory and learning ability. 

Research has also found links between poor oral hygiene and depression or anxiety due to increased levels of cortisol produced by inflammation caused by bacteria.

What is Instafloss?

Instafloss promises to revolutionize the way we floss our teeth. Developed by Eli Packouz, Instafloss is an H-shaped device that uses water jets to quickly and effectively remove plaque and debris from your teeth. 

The jets are always at a 90-degree angle, ensuring maximum coverage underneath the gums. This makes it faster and more effective than traditional string flossing, resulting in healthier teeth and gums.

The Instafloss device also solves the issue of creating custom mouth guards for water flossers. With its 8-shaped tip, it can fit any mouth size while still providing 100% coverage. 

Additionally, its swivel joint in the middle of the H-shape design allows each tooth to be cleaned four times in just 10 seconds, making it much faster than traditional flossing.

The potential health benefits of using Instafloss are numerous. It reduces the likelihood of people skipping flossing due to time constraints or pain. 

Furthermore, Instafloss ensures that each tooth is cleaned at a 90-degree angle, guaranteeing a thorough cleaning for the entire mouth.

If you're looking for an easier and more efficient way to maintain clean and healthy teeth, Instafloss might be the answer you've been seeking.
