I’m paranoid that I might one day contract (“contract“, is that right? Perhaps develop…) gingivitis.
It’s true. Poor oral-hygiene is a slippery slope kids. What’s next after inflammation of the gums? Infection? BLEEDING gums? LOST TEETH? All of this could potentially affect your entire body’s well being.
Who’s got the time to worry about all that mess?
That said: FLOSS.
Now, here’s my confession: Up until about 2 months ago, I barely flossed. It disgusts me. Watching the floss move back and forth between my teeth and pulling up old food repulses me. THEN, watching the floss disappear into my gum as I clean in between my teeth makes.me.want.to.throw.up.
But, the show must go on.
Flossing must continue.
I refuse to succumb to gingivitis. I floss DAILY. (Seriously.) I also refuse to sleep without washing my face and then applying my nightly anti-aging regimen, either. Hey – this is who I am.
So, kids – here’s a quick reminder on how to floss properly. (You’re welcome.)
