I like to floss while doing something else like watching TV or listening to music! It helps to think about something else and makes it seem less tedious.
Experiment with floss types or speak to the hygienist the next time you go for a cleaning for a brand recommendation. Over time, your gums will become less sensitive as well!
Tell yourself you’re just going to floss *one* tooth! Sounds dumb but it takes such little effort and by the time you’ve started you’ve overcome the friction to start and you’ll keep flossing! Good luck!
Have you tried using toothpaste for sensitive gums while brushing? Might help. For now reduce the frequency of flossing and use the toothpaste. Before long you should be able to floss away as much as you want with minimal irritation. Also try not to rub the gums while flossing. My take. Good luck.
