We’ve rounded up 5 tips to help you remember to brush and floss every day.

Number One

Tag it on to another habit.

Do you watch the Big Bang Theory the every day? Floss during the show. Take something you already do each day and just add flossing. (Doctor Frankel flosses in the shower everyday!)


Number Two

Choose what you will use.

Get floss you like. Mint flavored, thick or thin there are an endless variety of floss types. Select the one that works for you. Once you have found your match, you will find flossing more enjoyable.


Number Three

Leave it out.

Out of sight is out of mind. Display your floss. Place it in a beautiful bowl or be a purist and let your floss stand alone. Every room needs the designer touch, floss. At Frankel Dentistry we give patients a business card that holds floss. In your car, in your purse or in your pocket do not leave home without it. Bring it out. Yes, it is time for full floss exposure.


Number Four

Say it.

There is strength in speech. Create your own mantra. Ommm, Ahhhh, Floss Write a rhyme. Floss, Floss. Prevent Tooth Loss. Sing a tune. Floss in the name of love before I break my heart.

At Frankel Dentistry, we have a brochure outlining how a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Heart attack, stroke and diabetes show a relationship to oral health.


Number Five

Seeing is believing.

Take a photo of an edentulous (toothless person) or visit Frankel Dentistry and we will create an oral photo of your teeth. Tag the photo with old adage; Only Floss the Teeth You Want to Keep and tack it to your bathroom mirror. The visual reminder will keep you flossing.
