What is the Proper Way to Floss?

Most of us know the importance of flossing after we brush our teeth. Although a toothbrush does a very good job of keeping your teeth clean and healthy, there is really no way to clean those hard-to-reach spaces between your teeth other than by flossing your teeth. If you don’t floss your teeth, you will miss more than 1/3 of your tooth surface!

Although most people floss their teeth on a regular basis, a lot of people don’t understand proper flossing technique. By understanding how to floss your teeth correctly, you will be able to remove plague from the spaces between your teeth much more effectively.

Here is how to properly floss your teeth:

It is recommended to floss your teeth once a day (typically at night before bed, because that is when there is the most food residue left behind in your mouth).

Flossing your teeth regularly is a very important part of keeping your teeth healthy and clean, so make sure to keep up with flossing every day.
