Not flossing contributing to rank breath?

I hate flossing but know its gotta be done on a routine basis. Mind you I don't end up flossing everyday more like 2 or 3 times a week. For reasons I have yet to figure out my gums have started to bleed. But before you suggest its the way I'm flossing, please take not that I am ultra sensitive with my flossing technique. Maybe my gums are becoming ultra sensitive for whatever reasons
Now for the worst part. Whenever I'm flossing I seem to dig up quite sizable chunks of food particles from in between my teeth. This doesn't both me all so much as I'm doing what flossing is intended to fix. The problem lies in the raunchy, bunk, fowl, nauseating, stench that I can smell if I take a whiff of my floss string. Its truly unbearable. Should I be flossing everyday?
If it helps I don't have any cavities and I go to my monthly Dentist checkups as well as use crest whitestrips. I also brush twice a day. Overall I'd say my oral hygiene is above par.
Anyone?

considering everyone should floss once daily..your oral hygiene isn't exactly up to par.

It stinks because it's been there for a while, and you're probably getting bad breath too without knowing it.

Bleeding upon flossing generally means your gums are inflammed bcause of the irritants (ie food). I'd suggest you floss everyday. If you do not change then you'll increase your chances of getting gum disease.

Believe it or not your technique is also important, how are you flossing?

EW. floss everynight before you go to bed. if you don't remind yourself that the food particles stuck in your trap is DECAYING! if you are uncomfortable with the pain/bleeding, it is time you get over it because

1. it will go away as you get more use to it
2. if you don't floss...well say hello to dentures in the near future!

If you don't floss you may die of heart disease.. Seriously, the plaque causes atherosclerosis amongst other things. You really don't want the bacteria in your blood stream and should also see a dentist at least every 6 months. (the really bad bacteria starts building up after 3 months of not having been scraped off...)

I honestly should be flossing more myself, I tend to do it maybe once a week.

The thing is, I rarely eat foods, or anything that would get stuck in my mouth, I also use those "water pik" things to spray water at it, and i'm pretty damn sure I have rank breath from smoking anyways XD

You will start to bleed the first few times you do it. The bleeding and the stench from the particles will disappear soon afterward. I suggest going to a dentist to get a thorough cleaning procedure done and just floss daily and it should be fine.

flossing get the food out AND gets the plaque off before it turns into tartar

make sure you floss AT LEAST once a day. and visit your dentist regularly.

a bit offtopic:
years ago, i volunteered at a community dental event where people were doing free dental work. it probably won't happen to you, but without flossing and seeing your dentist regularly, tartar keeps building up. one patient had to have his teeth pulled. with the amount of tartar build up he had, you couldn't even tell what his tooth looked like. it looked like.. a small white coloured rock. it was really gross

The bleeding shouldn't be happening anymore. I've been flossing ever since I visited the dentist for the first time. I don't bleed like crazy but just enough to discolor the string. I've never had a cavity before so that is a testament to my overall oral health. I'd be able to tell if I was getting a build up of plaque because you can feel it with your tongue if you slide along the teeth.

And yes I'm that guy.. We all have our own dirty little secrets

that's a pretty poor indicator of plaque build up. The bacteria that's causingthe more serious problems will be UNDERNEATH your gums.

PM me if you want some resources...as a student working in the related field i can help.

funny, i never floss, yet i've never had cavities.

i brush my tongue every time i brush my teeth (2-3 times a day), at least 2. rarely 3. I think if you just brush your teeth well and pay attention to details you'll be fine.

and my breath dont stink. but my farts do.

^ it's different from person to person
just because you dont' have cavities doesnt mean you dont got nasty stuff building up there.

Not flossing is equivilent of take a shower but not bothering cleaning form the waist down.

Yup.....

I dont recall the numbers exactly..
But it was something like.. Brushing only cleans about 40% of the tooth.
Flossing is mandatory.

Flossing removes plaque and prevents gum disease in areas your toothbrush can't reach (i.e. between your teeth, and below the gum line) I'm no dentist (or hygenist for that matter), but I don't think there's any real correlation between cavities and flossing.

When flossing you should definitely be flossing below the gum line to clear any plaque and bacteria.

Not flossing is like what twitchyzero said, it's like taking a shower and washing only the top half (top half being the tooth that you can see, and the bottom half being the tooth below the gum line)

I'm the same way. I think it's genetics, something about certain peoples saliva having antibacterial properties, so you can't get bad breathe, or cavities.

I brush really well, twice a day, for years I flossed maybe once a month lol (but everyday now that I put a floss thing by my laptop)

my breathe is always fresh...makes for good morning kisses hahah

If you keep your toothbrush fresh, maybe by changing it every 4 weeks, the bristles should be able to clean below the gumline as well, not just the top half.
