Is your floss game weak? Think you’re ready to take it to the next level? This road is not for everyone. Narrow and waxy is the path that leads to perfect hygiene, but wide and sugary is the path that leads to cavities. If you think that you have what it take to Floss Like a Boss℠, get ready, because I’m about to tell you the secret.
Before I tell you, first ask yourself, how often do you floss? And I don’t mean like when the hygienist asks you how often do you floss and you say, “Everyday” but what you really mean to say is, “You should know. You did it six months ago.”
How often do you really floss? If your answer to that question is every six months, or every so often or anything other than everyday, then I need you to stop reading and go home. When you get there, open up that drawer in your bathroom that you don’t open too often. You’ll likely see several small rectangular boxes. Open one of them. Do you see that white thread inside? That’s called floss. Use it.
If you’re one of the rare people that claims that they floss everyday and is not lying through the plaque between their teeth, well, congratulations! You Floss Like a Boss℠!
However, if you are in that first group of flakey flossers, I have some tips for you.
Ever heard of nunchucks? Well how about GumChucks? Floss your gums ninja fast with these bad boys. It’ll be a full on plaque attack.
For those of you who need the occasional quick floss but want something a little less lethal, consider using flosspicks. Quick. Simple. Effective.
Want to remove the string all together? The next two products are for you. AirFloss is a product by Sonicare that claims to be able to replace actual floss. I tried it. In my opinion, it is not as good as actually flossing, but it is better than doing nothing.
My final suggestion has been around for a while but it is a fairly decent flossing alternative. It’s called a Water Flosser. They even make a version that attached to your shower head so that you can use it in the shower. Nice.
Keep in mind that nothing will replace the good ole’ fashion string between the teeth, but pick one of these and try it. It just might be the thing that you need to start flossing. With a little hard work, you too can Floss Like a Boss℠.
