It’s entirely possible, of course, that you don’t floss to protect your oral health simply because you don’t feel like it. If you can easily fess up to this detail, then it’s just a matter of digging up a bit of motivation. However, it’s also very likely that there’s a deeper reason you’re avoiding what should be a daily portion of your dental hygiene. Let’s see if we can help.
When You Floss, It Hurts
Who on earth would want to floss if it’s painful? Nobody! Not you, not your kids. If this applies to you, tell us immediately. You may need to floss with a lighter touch or you may have gingivitis. The sooner we figure out this oral health dilemma, the better.
It’s Too Difficult
If you don’t have a technique down that works for you, then you may need a little guidance during your next dental visit. Flossing should be easy. If you find it’s difficult, it is uncomfortable for your fingers, you’re having trouble navigating, etc., then simply let us know. We can solve this problem.
It Tastes Yucky
Are you buying your own floss? Is your spouse buying your floss and you always end up using mint, even though you cannot stand mint-flavored anything? Maybe you have tried a couple flavors that you’ve picked up at the drugstore but you are never satisfied. This can backfire significantly, causing you to ditch flossing altogether, which will not bode well for your oral health. Now, try having your kids use something that tastes bad: It won’t work for anyone. Try and try again until you find flavors everyone enjoys.
