Haven’t updated this in so long. I was about to write that although I may not do this every day, I feel like it has become a more regular part of my routine and dental hygiene. Then I read my past entries. What ever happened to the chart I printed? I just started looking up charts online, and might have stumbled upon the one or a similar one.
In general, it kind of made me realize I could still be doing a little better with my oral care. But it goes beyond the flossing. I do brush (just changed my toothbrush head recently) and floss but don’t always do it twice a day, and I am overdue for a dental check-up (same issue with insurance). I am thinking about trying to schedule an appointment through a school at a lesser rate.
I might also want to look into a different brand of toothpaste. Maybe I will incorporate the oral health goal into an overall taking care of my body goal. For that reason, I think I will mark this as done. 12 months ago
and I used to use it pretty regularly, but fell out of the habit. I’m going to keep it in front of the TV and see if that helps. I need to get back to daily skin care too, so maybe I should try and bundle this all together. 13 months ago
I have been lazy with flossing lately and need to step up before my 6 month cleaning. 23 months ago
I am heartbroken, embarrassed, and ready to get my act together. Phew! 1 year ago
This one hasn’t come easy, but I think I can now say that it’s habitual. I’m off to the dentist next week so will find out whether the persistence has paid off. 1 year ago
Forgot to floss lately, so today I decided that since I have not flossed in awhile and had an upcoming dental appointment, I would give myself a deep cleaning floss treatment with the Glide deep protection floss . . . I was spitting up blood and when I woke up later, I could not finish my sandwich at lunch because one side of my mouth was really sensitive. Several hours later, I’m still in a bit of pain. But on the bright side my teeth look much nicer. Tomorrow, though, I’ll go a bit easier on my gums. 2 years ago
Need to get back on track with flossing. A dental appointment for cleaning is also approaching. Thank goodness that dental insurance, though changed, is still be offered as a benefit at work. Also happy my dentist is on the new plan. 2 years ago
Dental appointment on the 28th this month. I have not been as diligent with flossing. Hopefully I can get them in tip top shape before the appointment and continue after the appointment is over. 2 years ago
...on the recommendation of my dentist, who recommended an interdental brush. I have some partial gum loss, which runs in my family and that I’ve probably continually aggravated with over-aggressive brushing.
The interdental brush (and end-tuft toothbrush) is awesome. I’m removing this from my list. 2 years ago
I decided to go private a few months ago and so far, it’s been a wise move. The dental care is so much better – the dentist & hygienist take time to answer my questions & make sure I’m OK. They’ve also encouraged me to work on my own dental health – so much so, that I’m now flossing almost every day. I’ve noticed a difference already. 2 years ago
