Any Flossing is Better Than No Flossing, Right?

If you aren't flossing at all, your mouth is going to succumb to problems at some point in time. It may not happen today, but it is going to happen. If you aren't flossing right, you may need to speak with your dentist about how to floss properly. They can teach you what you may be doing wrong, and show you how to fix it.

There Are Flossing Options

Even if you aren't able to floss once each day, you should still floss as often as you can. For those that do not know how to floss properly, trying to floss is still something you should be doing. However, you need to do it gently.

Flossing to where you are hurting your gums should be avoided at all costs. If you aren't sure how to floss, then make sure you ask your dentist to show you at your next appointment. It isn't the easiest of skills to accomplish for everyone, so taking the time to learn to do it right is important.

However, if you and traditional floss just do not seem to get along very well, there is another option. You can use a power flosser that sprays water to floss. This can be a much easier option for people who struggle to use traditional floss. It is much less likely to harm your gums, and it is much easier to use. Plus, it gives you the same results as using traditional floss if you use it each day.

If you want to know which type of flossing would be best for your mouth, then simply ask. Your dentist has a lot of knowledge and experience helping people get their mouths into the best state of oral health possible. Find out what they recommend and go from there.
