According to me one should always prefer to rinse the mouth after having cough drops, chewable vitamin C tablets or even antacids which produce cavities if left inside for too long. And no matter what kind of floss you use, it is a good idea to floss once a day and do it properly without hurting your gums. If you do not know how to floss, it is better to leave it alone rather than incur more injury. Every one knows that precaution certainly is the best cure, but if you find yourself having pains in gums, jaws or any tooth sites, you must always go to a certified dentist who can take care of your situation and give you a good dental treatment. And there may be many problems that can turn into bigger issues if left uncared for like gum infections where there is a chance of the infection spreading out and causing even more tooth decay. It can also make people ill in case the bacteria enter the blood stream.
