Dos and Don’ts: How To Achieve Enjoyable Flossing

If you floss your smile on a daily basis, then you are doing a wonderful job at upholding the guidelines and efforts required of your dental hygiene. We applaud your decision to remain so dedicated to enjoying a healthy grin. However, just because you are going through the motions doesn’t mean that you are so happy about all of this. To ensure you floss your teeth and you get to enjoy it, we offer up some dos and don’ts that may lend some surprising guidance for a better experience.

Dos and Don’ts: Flossing

Do: Choose floss that has a flavor and texture you really enjoy during dental hygiene sessions.

Don’t: Use any old floss because you assume they’re all the same and that no matter what, you won’t like it. You will be amazed by how much of a difference it can make when you are using something that your taste buds actually approve of and that works for your smile and preferences instead of against them.

Do: Try different flosses until you know what you like and what you dislike for your dental hygiene.

Don’t: Stick with the first product you try. Unless of course, you happen to love the first product you try. Otherwise, chances are good that figuring out just what you like and don’t like is going to require some trial and error. Fortunately, this is something you’ll really only have to go through once. Then, you’ll know what works for you.

Do: Ask us questions about how to select a floss that will work wonders for your smile and that helps address your needs and preferences.

Don’t: Assume that we aren’t interested in your dental hygiene questions. We are always ready to answer these, so ask, ask, ask!
