I was wondering if it is healthy to use mouthwash on a daily basis, forever
I mean, won't that make the mouth loose its ability to fight bacteria and over-depend on the mouthwash to do its job?
I've always had the impression that the long term use of such things weakens the natural immunity of the organ (the mouth in this case). So, am I right or wrong?
2) I always read that floss should be used at least one daily, preferable before sleep. But don't we hurt our gums when we do so EVERYDAY?
I know flossing should be gentle, and I know sometimes you have to use the floss to get rid of something stuck, but getting something between our teeth daily, is that OK?
30 or 40 years back, people never used floss, and their teeth were not worse that ours.
Sorry for the long post.
