The best thing about flossing is the feeling of accomplishment after. I have a fear of the dentist and pain in my mouth- but sometimes that manifests in less care. It makes me not want to brush or floss at all because it hurts, and then I don’t want to go to the dentist because I’m afraid they’re going to tell me I need fillings or something more drastic. Now that I’ve started to floss- I get excited that my gums don’t bleed. It means that they’re getting healthier. I want to keep improving them. I feel cleaner and it also helps curb my late night munching habit!
Water flossing is amazing. Then brushing, then string flossing. I enjoy the routine multiple times every day. Sometimes I string floss first, sometimes last.
