SUMMARY:
In this study, the differences in effect between participants that brushed and flossed twice daily as opposed to those that only brushed were monitored. The results showed that those that brushed and flossed had 38% fewer bleeding sites on their gums than before the study, and overall gum bleeding improved an average of 42%. There were no such improvements in the group that only brushed. Bad breath also significantly improved for both groups due to the recommendation that participants brush their tongue as well. Researchers claim that the tongue often harbors odor-causing bacteria. The bleeding of the gums and bad breath are often indicators of periodontal disease.
