Flossing is not Enough!

November 27th, 2008 · No Comments · health

Flossing has been getting me nowhere, buying a powerful electric toothbrush got my teeth shiny but my gums still bled, the problem is that some of my teeth are very close together making flossing awkward and between my back teeth impossible.

My Dental hygenist had been telling me for two years that I needed to use  Interdental Brushes these are like tiny pipe cleaners. Unfortunately I resisted this I found the idea a bit ooky. Anyway after my hygenist talked up the consequences of receding gums and showed me pictures of advanced gum disease I took the step and bought some.

Turns out they are kind of fun to use and what’s more I KNOW I’m solving the problem; touch wood I haven’t had a trace of blood after brushing. I use them when I’m waiting for my PC to finish something.

Why do I/we often resist important advice from experts? What mind-games do we play to justify it.
