The secret to perfect gums; white teeth; no flossing

I hated flossing. So, about 40 years ago, I stopped. Yet I have perfect gums and white teeth. Here’s my secret.

The purpose of flossing is to remove food particles from between your teeth. The purpose of removing food particles is to eliminate bacteria food.

When bacteria eat, they poop acid and feed other bacteria. The acid corrodes the calcium in your teeth, and the poop encourages infection in your gums.

So, the key to healthy gums is not merely to remove food particles but to remove bacteria.

This is what I do every day.


I take a small swig of hydrogen peroxide. I swish it energetically for 30 seconds to remove any traces of food and to kill all the bacteria and viruses that may have accumulated in my mouth.

I don’t spit it out.

With the peroxide still in my mouth, I put a tiny amount of toothpaste on my bush. I pretend I want the toothpaste tube to last a year. The peroxide + toothpaste will foam heavily, so I don’t want to feel like a rabid dog. I use the smallest amount of paste.

I brush my teeth. I make sure to get the inside front of my lower jaw. That’s the area where plaque really accumulates.

When I have brushed well, I spit but I don’t rinse. I leave the small remainder of the peroxide/paste to continue doing its work.


Before bed, I swish and gargle alcohol-based mouthwash for about 30 seconds. Gargling is important for killing germs at the back of my tongue. It also seems to help me avoid colds, flu and COVID.

And that’s it. My teeth gleam. My gums are firm. And I seldom get respiratory diseases.

And I never floss.


A small percentage of people have a bad reaction from peroxide. If you’re one of those people, stop or use less for a shorter time. Sometimes, the initial irritation disappears as the mouth becomes accustomed to the treatment.

Your dentist may not agree with the above. It’s not what dentists learn in school. But the proof will be in the pudding. If it doesn’t work for you, you always can go back to whatever you’ve been doing.

Many years ago, my dentist argued against it, but it’s what I’ve done for at least 40 years, and it works for me far better than flossing ever did. My gums are perfect and so are my teeth.

I hope it works for you.

  1. You have all your teeth? Sounds like you may also have benefit of good genes; parents have good teeth too? I’m down to 26, 14 bottom and 12 top. My technique is little toothpaste, but after every meal brushing and light stabbing or poking as I go. No floss. Between meals its hydraulic pressure using tongue and saliva, lots of noise so I do it when alone or out of range. Professional cleaning every 6 months to get plaque. $141.00
