Dr Kamlesh Kothari suggested people should floss every day for good oral health. “Oral health plays a crucial role in overall general health. The mouth is a host to many micro-organisms and if it is not kept clean and hygienic, many systemic problems like gastro-intestinal disease or even cardio-vascular problems can occur. A simple flossing habit for 2 minutes per day after brushing your teeth can go a long way in improving overall health. Flossing ensures that the parts of teeth and gums not accessible (30 percent of tooth surface) to brushing are also accessed and kept clean,” he said.
