At my last trip to the dentist, the (eye catchingly lovely) young lady dentist extolled the virtues of flossing - "a game changer" as she put it.

I can recall reading somewhere that flossing is an indicator of a longer life, and I thought I'd give it a go. The practice had, funnily enough, a preferred type that they sold. About 15mm of floss in a yoke.

She showed me the correct way to use it - insert between teeth, rub up and down on the edge surface of each tooth. I took her advice and bought a pack.

Must admit I was surprised at the (stinking) goo that came out on the first couple of attempts, but I've now made it part of my morning routine - leccy brush, floss, mouthwash.

Thought I'd share, because I'm nice like that.

@Fang_Farrier - anything to add?
