Tips to Make Flossing Easier

Posted .

Did you know there are things you can do to make flossing a bit easier? Well, it’s true. Our dentists, Drs. Abdelmonem and Quintero, are happy to tell you all about them because it’s very important to floss each day. Flossing helps you keep your smile in tip-top shape and also helps you prevent dental issues. So, to make flossing a bit easier, it’s best to do the following things:

-Use waxed floss: This is recommended because the floss can glide easily throughout the smile. It can clean between the teeth and along the gumline without a lot of trouble, and it is very durable, so it doesn’t break as often as other types of floss.

-Floss later in the day: This is beneficial because you generally have more energy and willpower later rather than earlier. So, instead of flossing right when you wake up, try flossing at night before you go to bed.

-Use a flossing product that can help: There are many products that can make flossing more convenient, like flossing picks, water flossers and floss threaders. Feel free to use one!
