Adults Have Many Options Today to Get Straighter Teeth

My crooked teeth always bothered me, but I didn't want to wear typical metal braces for years as an adult. I thought that was my only option until I brought up the subject one day to my dentist. He told me that there were so many more options today that I should consider. I made an appointment with an orthodontist to discuss my options, and he said that I was a great candidate for invisible teeth aligners. He said that other people would not even notice them in my mouth, and that I likely only needed to wear them for a year. I was so happy I made that first appointment, because I now have straight teeth and am so happy with my smile. I created this blog to help other adults realize they have many discreet teeth-straightening options today. No should live with a smile they don't love!

Dental Floss: A Life Staple

You have probably heard it a million times from your dentist: floss your teeth regularly. As much as you may dislike the practice, flossing can help to prevent cavities and gum disease. Having easy access to dental floss at home has other advantages. You can use this amazing substance for a variety of purposes. If you want to be prepared for almost anything, stock up on dental floss.

Better than Thread

Dental floss is stronger than thread, so it can be used to sew buttons back on or repair a tear in your favorite jeans. Experts also say it can replace a broken shoelace in a pinch. If you have a rope that is fraying, try wrapping the ends with dental floss to stop the damage. You can use floss to hang pictures and as a makeshift clothesline for lighter items such as bathing suits and lingerie. Using enough loops of floss can even tie down your trunk when necessary, something that can help you when moving your child to college this fall. Basically, dental floss can help hold your life together.

Survival Tools

If you are a sometimes camper or a survivalist, dental floss can help build your shelter. You can use the floss to bind branches together to make a tent or lean-to. If you are using a bow to hunt or even target practice and the bow string breaks, you can braid several strands of dental floss together as a replacement. It can even be used to create an alarm by tying tin cans together. If you are afraid of the world collapsing, you need to stock up on your dental floss.

Tooth Care

Dental professionals recommend using floss to clean between your teeth at least once a day. Whether you do if before or after brushing is unimportant. Flossing removes more plaque than brushing alone can do and so helps to prevent tartar from accumulating and potentially causing cavities. Dental floss can save you from needing extensive dental reconstruction procedures. If regular floss doesn't work well for you, try the waxed variety. It slides more easily between teeth that are particularly close together.

Dental floss isn't a miracle substance, but it is pretty handy. In fact, if you have dental floss and duct tape around the house, you will be prepared for almost anything. Of course, the best use for dental floss is for cavity and gum disease protection, so floss first. Then you can use dental floss for other tasks around the house.
