We’re just a few days into a brand-new year, and if you’re like many people who make New Year’s resolutions, you may already be struggling to follow them.

One of the reasons most people abandon their resolutions so early on is that they set goals that are often too vague, too overwhelming, or involve changes that are too dramatic to stick with.

But there’s one small change you can start making today that could deliver big results in terms of your oral and overall health.

It’s flossing!

Here’s a video from the American Dental Association that shows you the proper way to floss your teeth. Doing this once a day as part of your overall oral hygiene regimen can help prevent gum disease and tooth loss and make your dental checkups in 2021 easier!
