If you find yourself struggling to floss each day, you are not alone. Many people find it hard to floss because flossing can lead to bleeding and sore gums. However, after time and continuous flossing, the discomfort will fade and your gums and smile will be healthier and stronger.
Flossing sticks are easier to handle than traditional floss for many people. Flossing sticks can be used with one hand at anytime. Whether you are reading a book, talking on the phone, or even flipping through channels on the television, flossing sticks are at your disposal whenever you need them.
The sticks are small tools that have a point at one end of the stick, like a toothpick, and the floss at the other end, already measured out. There is no need to wind the floss around your fingers; therefore, you don’t need to worry about losing circulation in your fingers. It’s also an excellent option for people who struggle with coordination or grip.
If you struggle with traditional floss, flossing sticks may be a better option for you. Talk to your dentist if you have questions about flossing. Your dentist can address any questions or concerns you have about your smile and tell you how flossing can help you. So, call us today at 704.873.2211 so we can lead you to a healthier smile.
