What Is the Right Way to Floss?
We have all heard the recommendation from our dentists: The best way to stay on top of good oral care is to make sure you are properly cleaning your teeth at home. In order to do this, it is recommended that you brush at least twice each day and floss once.
Proper flossing of the teeth helps remove food particles between the teeth where a toothbrush cannot easily reach. Flossing also helps remove plaque between the teeth and under the gum line; this avoids plaque buildup and helps prevent gum disease.
