Flossing in the Expedited Age | Rauch Family Dentistry | Mesa, AZ

We do everything fast. We put in blitzkrieg hours of work during the week, we race home to prepare dinner, we stay in touch with friends and family at the push of a button and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. So who really has the patience for flossing during a time where virtually everything is expedited? flossing in the digital age
Your dentist will be quick to remind you how important it is to slow down and floss every day – your oral health depends on it. As powerful as the mightiest spinning toothbrush is, there’s only so much plaque and debris it can remove. Cavities and decay can easily develop in narrow spaces where our toothbrush can’t reach. Floss is like the superhero we so desperately need to remedy this situation.
Flossing has always had a bad reputation among us – but why? Is it really so much trouble to spend an extra minute flossing in order to safeguard our oral health? Do we really want to put ourselves at risk to developing gum disease and cavities to leave the bathroom a little quicker? Is it really too much to bother with removing uncomfortable chunks of food from between your teeth following a meal? Come on people, we need to exercise a little patience!
If you’re one of the millions who has trouble making time to floss in the expedited age, here’s the ultimate life hack for you and your oral health – buy yourself a bag of flossers and carry them everywhere. Floss your teeth at the office, floss your teeth in the car, floss your teeth in line for the ATM – just floss!
Multitasking your floss routine among other activities is a surefire way to ensure it’s actually happening. Imagine how pleased your dentist will be when they can finally say, “Wow, I can tell you’ve been flossing!”
You can do it, we can help!
