do you floss?today was Abdullahs second check up at the dentist .. so in each checkup his doctor checks his teeth, gums, his skills in brushing teeth, if hes ready for tooth paste yet or not (because some kids swallow it) and thats dangerous. Al7imdellah Abdullah been doing fine in all of that until his doctor asked me today : "does he floss?" !!
at first i thought he was kidding .. but his face didnt give me any "joke" vibe .. so i answered with a stunned face "floss!? hes not even two yet..? can he floss??"
he replied "as long as his teeth are all out his teeth should be flossed.. and its better to get him develop flossing habit from an early age, if he cant floss for now you have to floss for him"
i wanted to be honest and just say honestly that neither i or his father floss.. we brush and use mouth wash but thats it.. i couldnt.. part of me was afraid of being judged :/ lol sort of the case specially when the doctor is kind of hot ! :p
so anyways .. he insisted i start teaching him to floss .. he said people who do not floss.. are just like people who do not brush their teeth because all the food remains there to rot for days!!! its the cause of teeth decay, roots infections, bad breath! some gum infections and sensitivity! :/ i was grossed out of the thought .. but remembered that i was never advised by any of my dentists in kuwait to floss?! inshallah teaching him wont be difficult i was happy to find special flossing kit for toddlers in his goody bag! so now im actually excited to see how it will work out.
thanks to Abdullah now were all going to start flossing :D
back to my question.. do you guys floss?? lol
