If you forget to floss, your smile can be in grave danger. This is because flossing cleans your teeth and gums and helps you have the strong and successful oral health you need. It also helps you prevent major and dangerous dental problems, like tooth decay and gum disease. So, it’s important to remember to floss at least once a day. Our dentist, Dr. Gary Shmurak, is happy to help you do so by recommending that you do the following things:
-Set a reminder for yourself: All you need to do is write a reminder on a sticky note and stick it to the bathroom mirror. You can also set a reminder in your phone or you can write a reminder on the calendar hanging up on your wall.
-Keep your floss by your toothbrush: If you keep your floss by your toothbrush, you’ll see it every time you brush. This can help you remember to floss after you brush at least once a day.
-Keep floss handy: Keeping floss in your purse, backpack or briefcase can help you remember to floss during the day. Having it handy can also allow you to floss at any time, like after lunch before a big meeting or after work. This is handy for those who don’t have enough time to floss in the morning or night as part of their oral hygiene routine.
