Brilliant Uses for Dental Floss

Brilliant Uses for Dental Floss

And I bet you thought Dental Floss was only used on teeth. Here are some great uses for dental floss that you may not have thought of.

1. Fix a broken umbrella- fix a floppy rib by cutting a 2′ long piece of floss. using a sewing needle. thread the floss through the fabric part of the umbrella, then tie tie back the spoke.

2. Re-string a snapped bracelet- Measure out the appropriate amount of floss and begin stringing each bead on the strand. Many threads are too flimsy to hold up but floss has great strength.

3. Truss meat- Use floss instead of plain string. The nylon component of floss is tougher than twine and won’t weaken when it gets damp.

4. Pry apart stuck photos- old photos stuck together? Carefully slide a strand of dental floss between the prints. The ultra thin floss will gently loosen the pictures.

5. Redirect garden vines- Tie the stems to a wooden plank using floss. The floss will support the greenery so it can grow upward without flipping over. Then untie once the growth is complete.

Had my first visit to Dr. Mullaney’s office this month since the pandemic and the experience was gold standard. The safety processes and clean office environment were impeccable. Dr. Mullaney and staff were, as usual, amazing. Every step was explained, the protective garments worn by staff were the best I have experienced. It was a safe and positive visit and I recommend making an appointment!!

I am a new patient. After my first dentist appointment with Dr. Mullaney, I left feeling very informed and in control of ultimately making decisions about the care and treatment I receive. The staff is incredibly kind and knowledgeable. I love that they participate in helping veterans through The Freedom Day USA program. They are committed to providing a very clean and friendly atmosphere. In addition this practice goes out of its way to bring comfort and the latest in dentistry to all their patients.

I never thought that a person could enjoy going to the dentist until I started seeing Dr. Mullaney. Her attractive and serene office and Dr. Mullaney and her competent and friendly staff make every visit a pleasure. They have a gift for making each experience smooth and efficient, with meticulous attention to the patient’s needs and comfort. On a scale of 1 to 10 this practice is a 15!
