Big Girl Floss

My entire life has been an exercise in good oral care. The Mom has worked for dentists her entire career, therefore I have reaped the benefits of free toothbrushes and every 6 months checkups. I have yet to have a cavity in my 26 years of existence, so Thanks Mama.

Anyway...even with this limitless accessibility to oral hygiene products, I don't floss. Except when I have something in my teeth. I don't like to do it. Mom, on the other had, does it compulsively. Usually on the couch while watching TV. Don't come over to the house unannounced, you may see floss on the arm of the sofa. Used floss.

I used to tie the neighborhood boys up with floss, so you can see my lack of respect for the stuff.

But that was when I was a kid and all I was allowed were the little plastic or tiny metal floss dispensers. M&D had the grown-up floss dispenser, it was tall and oh so adult.

Well, guess what I got this Christmas? BIG GIRL FLOSS, in the tall dispenser.

Yup, I am an adult in the eyes of the tooth world and I have the floss to prove it.

Still not gonna floss unless I have too though.

If you floss every day for 2 weeks, you will see better gums, fresher breath and you will thank me. Just this tiny piece of string can make the difference between healthy and unheathly gums. So cheap, so easy and so worth while. So unite as one dental front and floss in the new year!! MOM

26 years of no cavities, I say not flossing has helped me more than hurt me.

Once you do it for a couple of weeks regularly, you'll notice a difference and feel gross if you don't do it.

Not sure if that's a selling point but....

Imagine not washing between your toes?...haha

Somehow, I'm not surprised you beat up on the other kids in your neighborhood...

Also, I'm with you on the flossing.
