My dentist has told me for many years i need to floss (well the other thing because i had braces, so sort of a mini toothbrush between my teeth). But u absolutely hate it, always have. It hurts, it makes my gum bleed and quite frankly it seems like an impossible task. Especially when i feel anxious or a bit blue. I do have periods where i feel better about myself and get an influx of energy so i try to start flossing again. But it is really hard. When i do, i do it before bed and after brushing my teeth. It takes about 2-3 minutes. But i have to rinse my tiny brush after each tooth and i hate it so much how the water drips down to my elbow. Especially if i am wearing long sleeves. All in all not a long task but i just can’t seem to make myself do it. I’d love to change, but it’s hard.
- How do you motivate yourself through the first days when flossing is painful?
- When is the best time to floss. Before or after brushing?
- So I put flossing on my list because I tend to forget to floss the most, and not only that but when creating a routine, a habitual routine at that – then it must entail creating a list of healthy habits that you are not used to doing every single day. Like I said I forget to floss alot so does any one else put flossing in their morning routine? (also I’m new at this app so please let me know if I’am using it incorrectly.) I have to ask because I got a sarcastic shithead asking me if I carry floss around in my bag-that kind of crap please keep to yourself.
- Is it better to floss before or after you brush your teeth?
- How long does it take for your gums to go back to normal once you start routinely flossing?
- What do you prefer, flossing picks or flossing thread?
- How often do you really floss?
- Is it okay to only floss once a day?
- Do you floss in the morning or at night?
- Do you find that there are some teeth that always have particles stuck in them? And, if so, do you spend more time brushing that area?
