Flossing and a waterpik! I’ve never had better checkups in my life since using my waterpik every night before bed. I was shocked to hear dentist tell me I had the beginning stages of bone loss due to gingivitis/poor gum health. Well, I get a “you’re doing great!” From him every time now. My mother-in-law had even worse issues—and considered pulling her teeth. She gets good checkups now that she uses her waterpik. If you have bad checkups and your dentist keeps asking if you floss (I flossed without fail), put your health first, spend the $$ and get a waterpik and use it at least 3 times a week. Lol, I was not endorsed to say this, just happy to finally get great checkups!
I like to use a combination of both dental floss picks and my tooth brush. Alternating back and forth from front and back
- 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?
