My Floss Findings (and I'm not talking about the stuff between my teeth)

After the 3rd day, I've now ruled out the old type of floss. Days 2 and 3 saw the regular store brand old-school floss get stuck between my teeth, forcing me to go to drastic measures to extract it. Today I've moved on to the tape floss. It seems to work much better.

The problem I've always had with flossing has been the gums. Mine always bleed and hurt for days. It's the same problem I have with working out. I can't get over the pain threshold. So now that I have to, I'm finding it's not so bad. Three days in and my gums only bleed for a minute (awesome visual, huh?) and my mouth hasn't been sore yet. I think it's because I am flossing at night before I brush my teeth, then rinsing in cold water. That's all I can come up with.

I've also done pretty good with the blogging. Granted, today's post was just a video but sometimes that's just going to have to be good enough.

  1. Good job! The reason they bleed is because you aren't flossing eventually goes away...same with exercising:)
