Smell That Floss! It Can Tell You A Lot!
Smell That Floss! That’s right, take a big whiff. If it stinks, you’ve got a problem.
So just why are we asking you to do this seemingly disgusting act of self-discovery? Because… It allows you to determine if you have gum disease. It’s common knowledge that when your gums bleed, you have gum disease, but what if they don’t bleed? Is there still a way to test the health of your gums?
You bet there is, and we call it the Road Kill Test. Wanna take a guess as to why?
It goes something like this.
Floss your teeth, making sure you get well below the gum line. Then smell the floss exactly where you used it before you move to a new position in the mouth. If the floss smells like bloated Interstate carcass, it means that bacteria is growing and you’ve got leftovers below the gum line. It also means that you should be brushing and flossing more. Your floss should smell clean.
Bacteria will always exist in your mouth regardless of who you are, and how much you claim on your taxes. The problem arises when you miss some of these bacteria which inevitably finds its way into the sulcus; that little pocket just below the gum line. That little pocket is also why we want you to brush 45 degrees into the gum line instead of circles and up and down, and it’s why we made the MD Brush the way we did.
If you want to brush like a dentist, you have to think like a dentist. Try the MD Brush today and discover what a really fresh mouth FEELS like. Its the only brush designed to place you into the correct 45-degree angle to clean out the pockets below the gum line.
Gum disease is serious business but to eliminate the root cause we have to change the way people THINK about brushing and flossing. Its why our brush is so unique and looks the way it does.
