Dental Floss is an Effective method to clean the inter dental areas which can be a heaven for Micro-organisms to reside undetected. Dental Flossing once a day has proved to be very useful in controlling Caries and eliminating Halitosis.
Here is the Normal Floss being used and the image below that is the Microscopic image of the same Floss after use, with Micro organisms filled in it, which were present between your teeth prior to Flossing.
Microscopic View of the Floss Surface after flossing:
Here we can see that there are many Micro organisms and Foreign particles which were in the interdental area before flossing was done. Scientists have used a high powered Electron Microscope to magnify to 40 Um (microns) which reveal the image seen below.
This image will definitely help us understand the importance of Flossing daily, as it shows the advantage of being able to remove debris and Micro organisms where other procedures failed to reach.
