A tip for an easier cleaning is to be flossing before you come in for a cleaning appointment. At least daily flossing for one week before the appointment will make it not so painful.
Everyone should be flossing to prevent cavities in-between the teeth everyday as a goal but we become forgetful or too busy. Don't be too hard on yourself if this happens and just start over.
Just remember people who floss, enjoy getting their teeth cleaned more than people who don't. There are some great products available to help with flossing. We carry a product that is extremely effective as well called Oral B Hummingbird.
This flosser is easier to use for children because they can hold onto the handle instead of trying to navigate the loose string.
Best Wishes & Happy Flossing!
