Limit Your Guilt about Not Flossing | Calabasas Dental Care

If you are the one who shies away from going to the dentist because you don’t floss regularly, this is for you!

1. You are Not Alone

Only about 45 percent of adult patients admit to flossing. Your hygienist should not be scolding you for being human. Instead, select a dental hygienist who will encourage and motivate you. Improvements are what it is about. If you shy away from going to see your dentist, you may lose your teeth – not the result you are looking for.

2. Make it simple

Only floss the teeth you want to keep.

3. Break it down

Is anyone really perfect at their flossing technique? Use your hygiene “coach” to improve each time you are visiting. If you keep improving, and are serious about the result you want, it will happen.
