Flossing…No More Excuses!

Flossing…No More Excuses!

Posted by Hillsdale Dental Care on Sep 20 2017, 04:13 AM

We hear a lot of excuses as to why our patients don’t floss.

“I don’t have time.”

“I can’t do it right.”

“I keep forgetting.”

We’re making these excuses a thing of the past once and for all. Why? Aside from the dangers of gum disease, recent studies have linked gum disease with heart problems and strokes.

So, let’s fight those excuses. We can fix the first two in one fell swoop (Though I don’t consider the solution fell at all).

Time and Technique

A common argument is it takes too much time to floss. But what if I told you it could be done in just one minute? Click here to watch a video teaching the quick and easy one minute method for flossing teeth.

If you need more help, we’re happy to work with you one-on-one at the office.

Forget Me Not

OK, we get it. You have a lot to remember. Here are some tips to help you remember to clean between those chompers:

  1. Leave your floss by your toothbrush.
    If you’re a list maker, put it on your to-do list.
    Set a notification on your phone.

Whatever it takes for you to remember.

Try these tips for one week, you’ll notice a difference in how you feel. So, fight those excuses and get on the road to healthy gums.
