When life gets crazy it's so easy to get caught up and forget the simple things. It's easy just to throw things into the too hard basket. But letting simple things like flossing slide can lead to huge problems later on. The key is to find a way to integrate these things into your hectic schedule. Think, do I actually have anything to eat after I have my dinner? If not, pick up the floss and your toothbrush and get this out of the way before you get too tired. This is a great trick for kids too. Don't forget that kids have a very low fraenum attachment (where the top lip tethers to the gum), this generally rises as your children get older so you don't notice it in older kids. The significance of this is that when we are trying to brush our young children's teeth we often bump into it causing pain for your little one. This leads to avoidance or even a fear response from your child. So place your finger over this gum attachment before you brush and this will protect it from damage.
