Flossing Mishaps

By the way, have you ever wrapped the dental floss way too tightly around one of your finger tips and experienced that moment of terror when you realize you have just cut off all the blood flow to the important appendage and CANNOT UNTIE IT ?!  And the vision of emergency rooms and one less finger quickly floods into your mind? Just happened to me. I really hate it. 😦 And it is not the first time. I guess you can call me an “overzealous tooth flosser.”

    I hate gripping floss, and use flossing picks instead. Drool-wise, it ends up being a neater affair in general vs. using regular floss.

    That’s why I switched to floss sticks/picks. They cost more but are easier to handle. You can find 300 packs at BJ’s or Costco.
