Not too into flossing? You used to floss but at some point, you just stopped? Maybe you’ve never really been very dedicated to it, though you are well aware it’s something we suggest for every single one of our patients. Whether you’re a sometimes- or rarely-flosser, our Lake Orion, MI team is here to suggest you consider something that could have a fantastic impact on your long-term oral health: Make this year the year that you commit to flossing your smile as part of your dental hygiene!
Make It Easier
Guess what? If you have never been a big fan of adding flossing into your dental hygiene experience, you might not realize it but it may be due to the fact that you’re not sure what to do. Or, the way you’ve been flossing has been much harder than it needs to be. Our team reminds you that when you come in for your dental checkups, you should absolutely ask us for explanations, pointers, and even demonstrations! When you know how to floss with ease and to do so effectively, it makes adding it to your daily practice a breeze.
Make It Feel Better
Are you not really into flossing at the moment not because you dislike it but because it hurts? No part of your dental hygiene should hurt. If that’s the case, then you should contact us today to schedule a checkup! You may need care for gingivitis, decay, or whatever issue is leading to your discomfort. Then, you may quickly get back to comfortable flossing!
Make It Something You Remember
If you haven’t been someone who has flossed on a daily basis for many, many years, then part of your problem might be that you just forget. While you may have to come up with something that will specifically work wonders for you, we can help get you started with some ideas. First, consider placing a sticky note on your mirror that reminds you to floss. Next, consider leaving your floss on your countertop, so you always see it when you walk into the bathroom. Think about the way that you function and the types of reminders that are effective and follow through, so flossing becomes a daily part of your dental hygiene!
