Armpit Struggles

Putting on my shirt in the morning is probably one of the most stressful parts of my day.

Now let me explain. I use a deodorant stick that is white. After I apply it, I need to focus real hard, while putting on my t-shirt.

Very carefully and very deliberately, I place my head through the neck hole of the shirt. Now that’s probably the easiest part of the whole process.

Here’s where it gets hard. The insertion of the arms, through the arm holes.

One wrong move and you’re walking around with a white streak on the outside of your shirt for the entire day.

Very embarrassing.

I used to get these white streaks on my shirts all the time.

Putting on my shirts would take a long time, but now with years of practice, I get my streak-less shirts on in no time.

With many people, flossing is one of those annoying tasks that people dread.

The complaint that I hear all the time, is that flossing takes too long.

Flossing is like any other task. The more you do it, the better you get.

In the beginning, it will take up to 5 minutes to get the entire mouth flossed. But with just a couple of weeks of consistent practice, you will get that time down to under a minute.

People who come into our office with a consistent flossing habit, it shows in their teeth and gums. Their mouths are immaculate and healthy.

Their gums are pain free, with no inflammation.

Once our patients get into the habit of flossing daily, they see and feel the benefit.

This is not a useless habit. Start today. And if you are not sure how to floss, give us a call at 773-292-1911 or visit us at to schedule a hygiene appointment and we would be happy to teach you.

Floss like a madman!

Emilio “T-Shirt Hero” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
