    Default post cooking chores

    I finally got around to flossing... why does is it feel like such a chore?
    My teeth always feel much better when I do, so why don't I do it more often?
    (I have no problem brushing my teeth, and with the electric one now it's
    kinda fun.... Maybe there should be an electric floss brush? Any VCs here
    that will put up the capital?)

    And zero dishes in the sink. I like seeing the sink dish-dirty free.

    Flossing shouldn't be a chore to you and no need to do it often.
    You only need to floss the ones that you want to keep. ;-D

    I read once that "old people" say the thing they wish they had taken care of
    better was their teeth.

    I think some people need to floss more than others. I hate flossing.
    My teeth are very close together, the floss shreds and I end up with
    little bits in there. It's very uncomfortable and annoying. I have
    every tooth that popped out and only expect to lose the one that was
    crack and filled 25 years ago in the next 20-25 years.

    I agree that flossing is a *necessary* chore but I have found that
    "brushpicks" are more pleasant to use. "The Doctor's Brushpicks" are
    quite affordable even if they are single use. One end has a sort of
    plastic brush and the other is a rather rough surfaced toothpick.

    I also like the brushpicks, there are several different kinds on the
    market now. I have two different brands
    that I use, they both work great. The other is a small tab handle
    with just a stiff plastic bristle brush like a
    bottle brush.....but tiny. It REALLY gets in there between the teeth
    at the gum line.

    As you get older and your teeth migrate around in your head a bit and
    your gums recede some it's
    easy to get stuff stuck between your teeth. Those brushpicks and
    little bristle brushes are great to keep
    all the spaces all cleaned out.

    I've been using them for a long time and my dentist tells me I do a
    good job of flossing. I don't floss !

    Just checked out the little bristle only pics......the little tab
    handle says GUM. I guess that's the brand name.

    Buy a better grade of floss, the flat ribbon-like kind works fine with
    close teeth... I like Colgate Total Waxed Dental Floss.

    I knew I had reached middle age when I started accumulating dental
    floss, pill bottles, etc on the table next to my recliner :-)

    Mom gave me one of those little tiny "bottle brushes for teeth. " I had
    my doubts, it worked well, but I am still leery of them because the
    bristles are attached to a strip of metal. I prefer floss.

    I destroyed my teeth as a teenager. Diet pop hadnt been invented yet and
    I drank 16-32oz coke every day, not to mention Grape Crush, which today
    sounds hideous to me. I "acted out" by not brushing my teeth often/no
    flossing, and ended up with hours and hours of dental work when I was
    17-a filling in every tooth.

    The fillings between my front teeth have discolored over years of
    drinking diet coke. I asked my dentist about whitening and he said it
    would only whiten the teeth and heighten the contrast between filling
    and tooth. He wanted to replace the fillings-no thanks they're perfectly
    functional and dental work on the front teeth is excruciating.

    I ignored him and have been using Colgate Advanced whitening toothpaste.
    It has definitely helped whiten those yellowed fillings in front.

    I can't imagine what dentures are like but I kind of look forward at age
    80 to having the perfect smile again :-)

    My dentist used to swear by those things but now they're saying to stop
    using them because they wear the enamel off of your teeth. My
    periodontist specifically treated my gums and teeth so that those
    brushes would work better than floss and now they say stop using them
    other than maybe once a week? WTF?

    I rarely floss because most of my teeth are very close together and I have
    had floss get stuck. Especially thicker floss. I actually had some waxed
    floss bits that the dentist had to pick out of there. Little bits broke off
    between the teeth and stuck in there! That was rather painful. I also have
    a permanent retainer on my front top teeth. I has broken off over the years
    so now is just on the two middle teeth but I can not floss those teeth.

    When I do floss, I use a flossing device or those disposable flossers with
    handles. Otherwise I play hell trying to get my hands in my mouth. I do
    use a battery operated toothbrush. I think it really helps!

    I have dental work where the crowns are all fused together so flossing
    is almost impossible. You have to use a floss threader which is what
    kids with braces have to use.

    I know what those are. I once had a stupid dental hygienist get one stuck
    between my teeth. She told me to use it and I said that it wouldn't work.
    She then had to get the dentist to remove it. His solution? Don't floss!

    Eeeeew! Why on earth do you feel the need to 'share' about your flossing?
    Some things are just gross when shared and other people's flossing is in
    that category.

    I hate when the flak flies on the mirror... but at the same time, feels
    good to be getting the gunk out... I better go floss!

    Mirrors can be cleaned... but teeth cannot be replaced. We aren't sharks.

    I can think of few more uncouth discussions than your mention of flak
    hitting the mirror and how good it is to get the gunk out. Your dentist
    might be interested but I grew out of that sort of discussion with puberty.

    There's a big difference between sharing and flooding groups with desperate
    trolls. It's not sharing, it's diarrhea of the keyboard.

    Just sayin'.

    Obviously your parents hadn't spent thousands of dollars on orthodontia (or
    if they did, you didn't care).

    I never got in the habit of drinking soda pop (and don't tell me diet stuff
    is any better for your teeth). They still need to be brushed.

    I don't floss every day but I've still got all my natural teeth.
