Keep Calm and Floss On

Flossing

If you’ve ever said you don’t have time to floss, it’s time to be honest. Flossing takes no more than one minute, people, so no more excuses! Here are a few ways you can spice up your flossing routine, making it worth those 60 seconds.

Go High Tech

New technologies like the Waterpik and Airfloss take traditional dental floss out of the picture and instead use water and air to clean between the teeth. Both flossers are easy to use, painless and effective.

Apps Aren’t Just for Happy Hour

They say you are the company you keep. Coach.me allows you to join a community of users looking to cultivate better habits while tracking your progress. Other habit tracking apps like Productivity, Strides: Habit Tracker, and Habits are great ways to keep yourself accountable and flossing on a daily basis.

Ya Snooze, Ya Lose

Setting timers and reminders on your smartphone are free and effective ways to carve out time in your daily schedule for dental hygiene, but for goodness sake, don’t hit snooze.

Floss on the Wild Side

Invest in flavored floss! Try swapping mint for tutti frutti, orange, strawberry, or coconut.
