Most Tampa men and women know that flossing is an important part of oral health. The value of this simple yet vital exercise in oral hygiene has been shown time and time again.
Flossing offers a chance to remove bits and pieces that a toothbrush will undoubtedly miss. Being afraid of the ‘cavity bugs,’ ‘mouth germies,’ or the ‘dental bogeyman’ may still not compel Tampa folks to floss regularly.
The fear of gingivitis and gum disease or crowns and fillings from cavities work for a week or so after a cleaning, but may not instill a lasting habit between teeth cleanings.
At Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa, we encourage our dental patients to look at flossing as an opportunity to start fresh. Just as showering and dressing for the day. It’s a way to increase motivation and include flossing into your established routine.
Flossing can be a positive opportunity to remind yourself to smile and feel happy as you approach your day. Flossing could be a time to think about the foods you are putting into your mouth and consider what improvements could be made to your diet.
Living in health-conscious communities such as Fish Hawk, Carrollwood, or Brandon can also help motivate you to floss regularly. The fresh air you breathe on a short walk will feel smooth as your run your tongue along the ridges of your teeth near the gums.
