This is the electric toothbrush I use and recommend: Sonicare Flex Care Plus. It is cheapest at Costco but comes in a pack of 2. It's important to replace the brush head every 3-4 months. Sonicare now has a subscription service to automatically send you a new brush head when it's time to replace, or you can buy the brush heads when you need them; they come out to approx $9 each on amazon but you can get 6 for $50 at Costco and they oftentimes have a $10 instant rebate. If you need to use a manual toothbrush, I recommend the Nimbus manual toothbrush. These Wisps are really handy when you can't brush after eating.  


The floss I recommend is Dr. Tung's Smart Floss and you can use this  Floss Holder to make it easier to use. (Amazon only sells the floss in packs of 3 or 6 so if you want to purchase a single pack you can find it at Whole Foods, Bristol Farms, or Sprouts.) A Waterpik can also be a great tool, this one is a Handheld Waterpik and is more convenient to use. You can use it in the shower and it takes up less counter space. 


This Crest Gum and Sensitivity  paste is one of my favorites and I like Act Total Care mouthwash. When choosing a toothpaste or mouthwash, look for "sodium fluoride" as an active ingredient.  It's best to stay away from mouthwashes with alcohol in them and whitening/charcoal pastes because the abrasives in them can damage the teeth. If you use a whitening rinse with hydrogen peroxide, only use it 2-3 times per week to avoid making the gum tissue sensitive. Other than that, whatever you prefer is just fine.


For an inexpensive whitening treatment Crest White Strips are a good option.

I have one of these too and could not agree more with you. My Orthodontist gave me the floss threaders but they were the worst. I tried flossing with them and it took nearly an hour - and after doing it once, in this case, I would agree with the OP's submission. After trying a bunch of different products, I've come across two awesome ones that I would highly recommend.

The first is Oral-B Glide Threader Floss. It comes individually packaged like a (flexable plastic/wax) needle and thread (don't be intimidated by the word needle, it's not sharp of needle-like, just a little firmer than the floss it's attached to). If you've got braces I'd really recommend giving this one a try.

And the other is GUM Soft-picks which is like a soft, slim proxybrush. I actually just started using these and absolutely love them.

Using floss once a day is great. If you want to do both, that's great as well. Glad you're so concerned, most young people aren't. Remember, the brackets on your teeth will collect plaque around them. if not cleaned properly, when they take the braces off, a weakened area in the form of the brackets outline will be left on your teeth. So I would also recommend proxy brushes to basically clean around the brackets. Scrub the plaque off. Superfloss by Oral B is also a great product for braces. Here are Amazon links

  1. practice makes perfect. since you are flossing, you gotta make sure you are doing everything right, right?

  2. use floss picks. they save a ton of time. https://www.amazon.com/Oral-Glide-Floss-Picks-Outlast/dp/B002P8FE8S/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=floss+picks&qid=1574487835&sr=8-6

  3. The first few times you floss, you gotta take your time cause you're clearing out the gunk anyway, it will be slow, don't worry about that.

  4. experiment and find a 'way' to floss that is comfortable for you. For me, i floss the right side of my mouth with my right hand and the left side with my left hand. the floss just maneuvers better that way.

  5. with repeated flossing, the spaces between your teeth gets cleaner and you'll realize you're just doing maintenance rather than cleaning. that gets a lot faster.
u/dahon95 · 2 pointsr/Philippines

Shampoo - Loreal Ever Fresh Anti-Danduff (Sulfate Free). Anything organic and sulfate free is okay. Other than that, tumitindi ang balakubak and flakes.

Deodorant - Crystal Body Rock Deodorant (Unscented, Aluminum/Parabens Free, Natural, Hypoallergenic, and leaves no stain)

Body/Facial Moisturizer - Lubriderm Men's 3-in-1 Lotion Fragrance Free

Lip Moisturizer - Burt's Bee 100% Natural Lip Balm

Toothpaste - Anything, actually. But Colgate is my go-to brand.

Soap - Ivory Fragrance Free or Irish Spring Classic

Hair Oil - Johnson & Johnson's Baby Oil.

Facial Wash - Clean & Clear Morning Burst Oil Free. Cetaphil is nice, too.

Dental Floss - Johnson & Johnson REACH (Mint waxed)

Briefs - Anything Bikini Briefs (multicolored sets). For local brands, I like Bench and Warren. They last a long time bago maging "baconized." :D

Colognes/Perfumes - too many to mention (I have more than 30 bottles that I rotate, excluding samples and decants)

u/lexitr0n · 1 pointr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

I have a good tip to help you start flossing. If you keep a bag of those 'flossers' ( link to my favorite brand/style: http://www.amazon.com/Oral-b-Advantage-Floss-Pick-Unflavored/dp/B001KYU7QM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1311357065&sr=8-2 ) in your car, you'll probably floss more. Just having them available when you're not doing other things makes it easier to do. If that makes sense.

Also on the same wavelength, keeping them by your computer so they're available when you're, say, checking reddit makes it easier too.

Flossing really isn't so bad, and you'll likely notice a difference in as little as a week. And your dentist will too.

u/dental_hygenius · 5 pointsr/Dentistry

Try Reach Total Care floss. It's stretchy like a rubber band. Amazon link.

Glide Comfort Plus is another personal favorite.

u/dreamsofaninsomniac · 1 pointr/braces

I actually just use a manual ortho brush currently. I've tried a Sonicare electric toothbrush and an Oral-B cheapo electric toothbrush before I got braces, but I didn't really like either. I just learned how to brush better with a manual brush by watching a whole bunch of YouTube videos about different brushing techniques.

I don't think a regular toothbrush (manual or electric) can really get into all the bracket spaces, but if you go back through and brush in between and on the top and bottom of all your brackets with an interdental brush, your brackets should stay pretty clean. There are a lot of different interdental brushes out there, but my ortho hands out these: https://www.amazon.com/Anself-Dental-Inter-dental-Flosser-Toothpick/dp/B074BPBHFT?ref_=ast_bbp_dp . The good thing about these is there is no cap to lose and you get a lot of them so you can change them out frequently. I've been changing them out once a week.

u/Warfrog · 2 pointsr/Dentistry

Tooth paste - people don't like that it cleans off dead skin cells from inside your cheeks, but its a good thing!

Toothbrush - THE BEST!!

Mouthwash - no alcohol and slowly whitens

Interdental brushes - use at the gumline between your teeth. Your gums will bleed a lot at first because they are inflammed, but once the gingivitis clears up within 2-3 days it won't bleed. (Find a size that fits each gap, buy a multipack first and see which ones you need to buy more of)

u/Schabernack · 8 pointsr/tifu

I have the same problem with my teeth. They're all incredibly tightly spaced. My dentist recommend getting ribbon floss that's waxed. It's thin and slippery and you only to have pull back and forth gently to get the floss in between your teeth. It's much better than regular string floss

I tried out Crest's Glide floss and liked it: https://www.amazon.com/Oral-B-Glide-Pro-Health-Clean-Flavor/dp/B001FWXSBU

Don't buy it from Amazon. It's overpriced. This floss was great and never tore on my fillings. I also don't think my gums bled at all when I used it.

Right now I'm using Oral B Satin Floss: https://www.amazon.com/Oral-B-Complete-Satin-Floss-Mint/dp/B009H17ODE

It's almost as good but I don't like the texture. I only got it because it was on sale at my grocery store.

You should definitely look into one of these.

u/napjerks · 6 pointsr/braces

I have this one: Water Pik Water Flosser
I would also emphasize it does not replace flossing as my orthodontist repeats to me every time I visit.
This is the best dental floss, great with braces: Oral B Satin Floss

u/kpthunder · 2 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

I got tired of hearing this but I hated flossing unless I was using these. They were still too manual for my liking so I look up "power flosser" on Amazon and wound up buying a Waterpik. At my next appointment (after using the Waterpik regularly) the dentist said that my oral health improved by a large margin.

Is there a point to me posting this? Probably not...

u/Zpg · 3 pointsr/ProjectEnrichment

these. I bought them recently, have never been into flossing, but now I can't wait to do it before bed. Makes your mouth feel infinitely better and more satisfied than just brushing.

u/flsurf7 · 1 pointr/Dentistry

These floss threaders are a little thicker and wont bend as easily:
Bridge Aid FLossers

They might be a little tighter of a fit, but worth a try. You can also take your current threaders and try to curve the threader to point up. Kind of like how you would curl the string on a balloon with scissors (if that makes sense). That way when you push the threader through, it will start to curl up away from the gum tissues.

u/audreyshake · 8 pointsr/LifeProTips

I like [this kind](<http://www.amazon.com/CREST-GLIDE-FLOSS-PICKS-EACH/dp/B001V9FK2M/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1367720215&sr=8-12&keywords=floss+picks> "Amazon product page.") much better. They're the only way I can floss without gagging.

u/mvenice1 · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

I’d think with the floss spool that a design like this, or this would do better because you wouldn’t have to hold the handle and spool to the side. You could make it long enough to be out of the way.

u/suckinonmytitties · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

floss picks from my under $5 list. cowpox. thanks for the contest!

u/lookin_cool · 1 pointr/unpopularopinion

You should use placards! Check out: Plackers Micro Mint Freshens Breath, Mint https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000GGHRYK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_SAf0CbV90BNGR

This is what I use. Easy and portable.

u/otac0n · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

I started flossing after my root canal. It's actually really easy to get started.

Just subscribe to these Plackers
and keep them next to your computer. Use them while redditing.

u/LippyTDB · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

I try to use Plackers after every meal. You only need one to clean between all your teeth.

u/kane2742 · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Not if you use something like these. They make flossing a lot easier. If you have trouble getting in the habit of flossing, either do it when you brush your teeth, or just start flossing while you browse Reddit or watch TV or something.

u/kolloth · 1 pointr/Warhammer40k

to get into the tight spots you can use an inter-dental brush like these



u/k3ithk · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I use something like these.

u/Hyperion1144 · 2 pointsr/starterpacks

I have super tight teeth.... I use these:

Listerine ULTRACLEAN Access Flosser with 36 Refills, Mint Flavored (Original Version) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PG59X2K/

Sometimes I break the floss, but not often. I position the floss string and literally bite it down (gradually) in between my teeth. It's the only way I can floss.

Maybe this could help you?

u/synt4x · 1 pointr/interestingasfuck

The best flossers are ones with a tensioner built in. It fixes the issue where the floss gets saggy.

http://www.amazon.com/CREST-GLIDE-FLOSS-PICKS-EACH/dp/B001V9FK2M/ are what I use. Way more expensive than what you posted, but cheaper than not flossing at all and needing a root canal.

u/Aygtets2 · 4 pointsr/3Dprinting

There's also this. Which I think are much more comfortable than lose little ones.

u/DrRam121 · 1 pointr/Dentistry

My Wife uses Oral-B Threader Floss for her permanent retainer and swears by it.

u/TexacoRandom · 1 pointr/justneckbeardthings

Also, buy these. They are a life changer. You should be able to find them cheaper than this in any grocery store or decent size pharmacy.

u/MrFurrberry · 1 pointr/Hemophilia

I had really bad bloody gums all of my life.

Then I discovered Plackers. After 2 weeks, if your gums still bleed... well... you can slap my ass and call me shirley, if you like.
