Time to move on to charcoal floss!
You should use dental floss. You should also be able to floss guilt-free. Traditional dental floss is waxed nylon, rolled in a plastic box. Each strand takes fifty to eighty years to decompose. If you unwisely flush it down the toilet, it can cause severe blockages as it won't crumble.
Fortunately, there are other ways to approach your dental hygiene. Charcoal floss is made with bamboo charcoal fiber and candelilla wax. This means that it is all natural. To make it "zero impact", you should look for floss shipped in glass containers, such as BribeUShop Bamboo Charcoal Floss.
Flossing every day (in combination with your toothbrush and mouthwash) helps protect you from gingivitis by removing plaque and food debris to keep your teeth and gums healthy and to give you a beautiful smile.
PROBABLY YOUR CURRENT DENTAL FLOSS IS NOT VEGAN
Regular dental floss, be it nylon or Teflon, tends to be coated with beeswax, making it non-vegan. Charcoal floss uses candelilla wax, preventing the exploitation of animals by dental care.
Not even the aroma is a plus point towards plastic dental floss. BribeUShop uses peppermint oil on its charcoal floss, to freshen users' mouths.
WHY DENTAL CHARCOAL FLOSS IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
There are tons of alternatives to flossing. Toothpicks, interdental brushes, oral irrigators, or water jets can be used. But charcoal floss has particular advantages.
Bamboo charcoal is a natural antibacterial and antifungal agent. Hence, charcoal floss helps remove odors, deodorize the mouth and detoxify the gums.
Charcoal floss threads tend to be thicker than nylon floss threads. This makes them more fragile in contact with uneven teeth, but it also means they are less likely to cut the gums and lead to bleeding.
Charcoal, although generally made from burning wood, has a low environmental impact when made from bamboo. Bamboo grows back quickly, making it a more sustainable source of wood.
HAVING BLACK IDENTAL FLOSS BRINGS UNEXPECTED ADVANTAGES
The only thing that comes to mind when you first see charcoal floss is that it is visibly black. The darker color allows you to see the food residue of the plaque you are removing between your teeth. The image may put off some people, but it will also make abundantly clear just how effective a "zero impact" dental care routine can be.
Charcoal floss, just like charcoal toothpaste, can also have whitening properties. Charcoal is a mild abrasive, so it can help remove surface stains on teeth. Coal binds to toxins and odors instead of absorbing particles.
With charcoal floss you will have environmentally friendly hygiene and a long-term investment, both for dental care and for the health of the planet.
In this article, however, we recall why it is important to switch to a bamboo toothbrush.
