A dental hygienist told me that being consistent with timing is more important than the timing itself. I like to do it before bed because it means I clean out a bunch of bacteria before my mouth is going to be closed for a long stretch of time
You could of course, but when you do it at night before going to bed, your teeth and gums have time to recover while you sleep. You could repeat this after breakfast and lunch of course. But I gather night time is the most important one.
I am still working on flossing at all to be honest,however,if I had to give my input on what the best Routine would be…I floss my teeth every evening to get off all of the days worth of plaque.
Yes. My filling fell out this morning, and I can't help but feel partially responsible because I don't take care of my teeth. Don't be like me, brush every day and floss twice a day.
Gum Disease is tied in directly with heart disease and our gums are very close to our brains. Certain things seem trivial and need great care and a qualified professional. As silly as it may sound, you really should talk to your dentist.
I think just at night is fine. Thats what dentists have told me. I dont know all thr theory behind that, but I only floss at night, and my teeth havent fallen out yet XD XD XD
- 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?
