How Can I Make Flossing Easier?

Posted .

If you’re interested in making flossing easier each day, you’re not alone. Many people struggle to floss their teeth because they have a hard time maneuvering the floss, or they can’t properly clean between the teeth. Whatever your reason for your interest in making flossing easier, our dentist, Dr. Bradley Adkins, is happy to help you. It’s very important to floss at least once a day. To help you do so, he encourages you to do the following things:

-Use waxed floss: Waxed floss can be helpful because it can glide easily between the teeth and along the gumline. It is also very durable, so it doesn’t break as often as other types of floss.

-Floss later in the day: This is beneficial because you generally have more energy and willpower later rather than earlier. So, instead of flossing right when you wake up, try flossing at night before you go to bed.

-Use a flossing product that can help: There are many flossing tools available, like flossing picks, floss threaders and water flossers. These tools can help you properly and effectively floss in an easier manner. Try using one!
