How to floss your teeth

floss

  • Don’t be stingy with the floss!  Use a long piece and wrap  it around a finger on  each hand.
  • Grasp the string tightly between your thumb and forefinger, and use a rubbing motion to guide it between teeth.
  • When you floss along your gum line, form a C to follow the shape of the tooth.
  • Don’t forget the back of your last molars.  These are easy for people to skip because they are harder to reach.
