If you don’t love your dental floss, particularly if there was a time in your life when you didn’t really have a problem with floss (or, maybe you even loved your floss), well … it’s time to love it again! How to force yourself to feel wonderfully toward this essential dental hygiene product when you can barely force yourself to clean between your teeth every day? Fortunately, finding a floss you actually feel good about isn’t difficult. It’s just a matter of considering some basic yet powerful details.
First, Check The Texture
Before you do anything else, ask yourself about texture. Do you like a tape-like dental floss? Do you prefer a very thin thread? How about a chunkier thread? Do you want the texture to include wax (for easier slipping between teeth) or do you absolutely detest wax? Go through these details to narrow down the decision.
Next, Select A Flavor
Now, dental hygiene will not be something you feel good about if you find the flavor of your dental floss to be disgusting. Choose something that appeals to you. Do you want mint? Cinnamon? No flavor at all? Something less common? Be honest with yourself and then choose one (or multiple options) and you’ll be happy you took this into consideration.
Finally, Do A Quick Check For ADA Approval
Now, if you want to love your floss again, then it’s important to know that your dental hygiene efforts will actually be worthwhile. Here we go: Look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance. When you find it on the product, that means it will do what it says it’s going to do!
