I just went in for a filling recently - on one of my wisdom teeth. My mouth is still a little sore. My dentist pointed out on the x-rays things that were invisible to my untrained eyes and asked me if I floss. "No." Embarrassing but true. He then explained to me that the things that I didn't see will, in time, turn into many cavities, but if I floss, they may not get worse. Tonight I decided to start to try to form the habit, and I realized extra reasons that I don't like flossing, besides just not liking to take the time. One of them is - I don't like knowing what's still there. Yuck. I have lived with girls before who have made "flossing parties" a nightly ritual. If I want to make this something I actually do daily, maybe I need to do the same.
