How To Floss


Wind 18inches of dental floss tightly around your middle fingers, leave a couple inches of floss in the middle.
Holding the floss tightly between your thumbs and index fingers, gently guide the floss between the teeth (don’t use abrupt movement as it can cut or damage your gums).
To clean each side of the tooth and under the gum line, use a side-to-side motion gently curving the floss around the base of each tooth.
Use a clean section of floss as you move from tooth to tooth.
To remove the floss, use the same back-and-forth motion to bring the floss up and away from between the teeth.
